Carine Weve dedicates herself to creating conceptual pencil drawings, submitting them to simple, strict rules that result in strong mathematical images. The feel of handwork and the precision of execution give the drawings a delicate and poetic quality.

Weve will show the drawing project “1+100”. With this series she investigates how a structure can escape from itself. Not despite, but because of itself. The 100 drawings are elaborations of a detail of a master drawing and are submitted to the same implementing rules as the master. But contrary to the master, these drawings have a strong structure that at first sight looks like simple repetition. Nothing is less true. The longer one looks at it, the more the eye looses its grip on the structure. Attempts to focus only lead to discovering creaks and confusion in the structure.

Carine Weve lives and works in Rotterdam. She studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, The Netherlands. Since 2006 she has taken part in several solo and group shows worldwide: she exhibited her work in Beijing, New York, several cities in Europe and The Netherlands, resulting in purchases by international art collectors.
