Drawing Cabinet by Jim Mooijekind
New Works On Paper
Opening: Saturday 25 March, 4-6 PM
Location: Chopinstraat 31, Amsterdam
Jim Mooijekind makes dense, figurative drawings and paintings. In his works he mostly uses an autobiographical avatar in combination with a wide array of symbols and references to give form to the unresolved philosophical matters he has in his head. He plays in a field where the grim, the Fun, the epic and the mundane can co-exist.
His artistic inspirations stem mostly from the autonomous and non-pretentious qualities of outsider artists. And the honesty and directness from the cartoons he used to watch growing up in the 90’s and first part of the 00’s.
