Momentum is a new work which was shown for the first time in the exhibition Motivi Portanti (with P.B. Van Rossem) at galerie Van Den Berge. A couple of years ago I started to research the size of The Big Wave by Hokusai. When I showed the first results a devastating tsunami hit Japan. I was shocked by this bizarre coincidence. In the newpapers I found pictures of the wave at the moment it hit the coast and the patterns of the splash were beautiful in contradiction to the result a moment later. Based on these photographs I made a series of drawings. Just fragile lines and dots to show the wave pattern, no details of the landscape. Momentum is based on these drawings.
