In 'gold leaf boys Part II' Drost continues the theme in the Sen Lin Mu project from 2017. He then took roughly 150 photos of the canopy of three acacia trees to be felled. At the beginning of 2021, he drew 139 of these photos in his own way, with pencil on Nepalese paper. Drost surprised himself with this: how many ways of expression can you represent with a pencil drawing?
Drost adds some 'old work' to this presentation at De Nieuwe Gang, including six photographic works that he showed at Artis in Den Bosch in 1991 and which he radically edited for this exhibition.
