workshop | Drawing hands with a pencil

Daan Noppen - Saturday June 3 & Sunday June 4
Factory Floor
1 hour
Saturday June 3
Sunday June 4

This workshop ‘Drawing hands with a pencil’ will be taught by internationally renowned Dutch artist Daan Noppen. The participants will work on a drawing, under the guidance of Noppen. Hands as a subject: they are difficult to capture, and yet say so much about a person.


Daan Noppen is best known for his realistic larger than life drawings of portraits and bodies. Physics and it’s relation to our being, our emotions, plays a big part in his work. The artist plays with notions of reality by projecting time as a physical dimension. Rather than becoming something ‘scientific’ this opens up a visual world of our hidden layers of our desires, our pain and our cry for being loved.


‘Amsterdam based artist Daan Noppen brings a special dynamism to his pencil drawings of still life and portraits. His works are not only eye-catching for their precise layering of details, but also in their massive size that gives his subjects a more palpable presence. A closer look at each piece reveals mathematical equations in between the pencil lines that relate to our reality. More recent works express the artist’s continued fascination with mathematics, geometry, and physics, as his figures appear to be gauged, dissipate, and intermingle in a void of empty vector space’.
