Untitled Conversations is a series of drawings inspired by the french term mise-en-scene. It refers to the arrangement of scenery and stage properties in a theater, and later also in movies. As a concept, it embraces all the aspects a director has control over, and I have found joy in transferring it to the way I create stories on paper.


With graphite, ink and correction  fluid, I compose and decompose mise-en-scene in a two-dimensional universe. Tranquil episodes are staged, and moments are frozen just before or after something has happened. From here, the shifting gaze serves as a conduit for endless narratives.
