Recently I have been working on my solo show “Deep Deep Down” at print studio Kapitaal in Utrecht, The Netherlands. It’s a combination of graphic screenprints and new screenprints based on set photography.
Nick Liefhebber has always been inspired by visual languages of the past, ancient cultures tend to have a certain style and set of symbols. Often a practical solution for a society where most people couldn’t read. With ‘Deep Deep Down’ Nick Liefhebber created his own stories and ever expanding universe, mixing existing symbolism with his own imagery.
His delicate layered images are made from rough graphic shapes combined with investigating new ways of creating screenprints. Deep Deep Down stands for uncovering new techniques, images and stories.
