Paul van der Eerden (1954) and Romy Muijrers (1990) started their collaborative project ‘Suite’ in 2018. Either Van der Eerden of Muijrers starts with a first outline or stain on the paper that is elaborated upon by the other in several sessions until the drawing is completed. Muijrers has a more detailed and soft approach, Van der Eerden adds sharp outlines and texts. The images vary from landscapes, plants, human figures to texts, some very detailed, others more simple and outspoken. They often convey a dreamlike state or mental image that has to be deciphered. The texts used are quotes from poetry and literature of among others Li Po, Han Shan, Kathleen Rain, William Blake but also popsongs from Joni Mitchell, The Byrds, The Hollies or Radiohead.
