"I work with materials which are soft, light, flexible and open to endless development. For the Post Modern Collection I made miniatures, using porcupine quills, collected during my artist in residence in Mali. Each work is unique and signed." – Marian Bijlenga
"I am fascinated by dots, lines and contours, by their rhythmical movements but also by the empty space they confine. Instead of drawing on paper, I draw in space using textile as a material. By leaving some space between the structure and the wall the object is freed from its background and interacts with the white wall. It becomes what I call a "spatial drawing."
