Over the last four decades, Pieter Slagboom has created an iconographic world of large-scale colored pencil drawings. His works are ethereal and poetic, an analysis of contemporary society that examines how culture and religion circumscribe the body. They also depict a private inner world full of delicately rendered forms.
