Drager Meurtant (1951) was trained as veterinarian-biomedical researcher and has long-term interest in art. In creative moments, I compose poems, sculptures (assemblages), collages and paintings. As autodidact and experienced carpenter, I use the circle saw next to the jig-saw, and natural materials (wood, stone) in addition to construction material. Much of the basic elements are from demolition- / remnant materials ("recycling art"). The juxtaposition of different materials produces tension not stress. However, looking at structures, compositions, during the process of shape-giving, I seek to strike-out a simple suit of illusions.
