I close my eyes again. ink and acrylics on paper. By Ank Damen
When I went to a photo fair of young and upcoming photographers in Amsterdam, I got to see the work of Eli Dijkers. In between all the other pictures, there was one that touched me immediately – a portrait that I fell in love with. Although Eli Dijkers was not familiar with my work, he agreed on an interchange on art. He trusted me enough to give me the photograph and wait until I had sent my part of the trade. This painting on the left is the work I made in exchange for the portrait of a young girl with her eyes closed, he liked it. click to go to the website of Eli Dijkers and see his portrait!
