Work on paper

Invisible Men

Inspired by Invisible Man, Ralph Ellison’s only novel, I’ve visualized the invisible men in my personal life and in society. On the pages of an old biology textbook with its illustrations of innards, skin structure, hair, the digestive system, and so on, I’ve tried to visualize the invisible: from spirit to flesh.

Note: sizes 18cm x 25cm mixed media on pages of an old biology book; total of 57 works.

These works are also presented in publication, beautifully reproduced and introduced by an interview with the artist (available at https://eindeloos.com/product/invisible-men/).
