drawings with pencil, oli/softpastel, etc - 1983/2018

Drawings are the basis of the work of Bart Drost. The personal notes of an experience, an experience, of thoughts. Now once they show a dream world, then again it is an attempt to catch the essence of the daily reality in an image. The drawings are independent works of art. More than once, they formed the rise to paintings, sculptures or installations.
