Monumental sketches have become a signum

of Astrid van Arkel’s art. Raw and extraditing,

they have the ability to make an impression

on the viewer. In a series of self portraits in full

figure, which are now shown at STUDIO L2

under the challenging title 

”I Have Been to Hell and Back Again”

Astrid draws her serious portraits.

They were created during an ongoing life crisis.

Maybe as an attempt to get an explanation

or to obtain a solution. The images are

melancholic, dampened and att the same time

they radiate strength and harmony.
