Growing Up

Marie Verstegen

A serie of three wood cuts ‘Growing Up, Believe and Follow Me, 2017.

Part of Jan Jansen Shoe Treasures, Jan Jansen originals early 1980’s).

To ensure he understood the shoes, Verstegen took
each shoe apart completely and started to rebuilding them piece
by piece. he used the different elements such as patches
of leather and parts of the original pattern. He asked himself several questions: who wears these shoes? Where are they going? What
road are they taking and what feeling accompanies
that?
