casa sofia - barcelona - 1993

In 1993 Bart Drost lived as artist in residence for four weeks at Casa Sofia in Barcelon. His previous hiking trips through the Pyrenees had him convinced thathe vould find the real working spirit up there.
Drost found in one of the alleys around Casa Sofia outside a print shop a number of screen prints with hunting scenes: hunters, dogs and horses. This prints (70x50cm) formed the foundation for his new work: he stuck the paper to large formats together.. As pictorial material he used paints and pigments from the opposite building shop.

For the return journey he had to cut up these large format drawings again. The processing of these works was in 1997 under the title of ' Que crias, que queres, ti amo, ol? ' exhibited at Galerie Magenta in Nijmegen.
