LIEZEL VAN BEEK

I have a sense of something, through memory or intuition, something that I know to be true, but can never put my finger on. I am pining for a world forever beyond my grasp, and through the act of searching, I am slowly (re)creating that reality.

My camera and the lines and letters that I draw are my companions on this expedition. Together we try to be vigilant of signs hidden in plain sight. I keep asking questions and making notes, to see what patterns emerge. So far our only yields are incoherent scribbles and confused images. My work is to refine my ability to observe, feel and dream – the tools that I need to crack the code of what it means to be alive.
