Ik ben geen stoel

Ik ben geen stoel


An unmistakable expression of this chair, ehh, drawn chair. A playful reference to the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte and in particular to his famous painting ‘Ceci n’est pas une pipe‘.

Is a drawn chair just as much chair? Mentally, yes, then it is the image in your head. But if you want to sit on it? I find this crossing from concept to image to archetype and back again very fascinating. See, for example, the drawing ‘Strip’.
Conceived in an edition of 5, the first from 2017 has been sold. These four are all just completed. Of course I can make one in English, French, etc.

Would you like to have this idea implemented with a chair of your own or a a chair  of a good friend or relation? That’s possible! Please email me a clear photo of the chair in question.
