Raymond Lemstra is a Dutch artist and illustrator based in Amsterdam. His works are both playful and imaginative, and his intricate pencil work and detailed layers of shading reveal an exceptional level of skill, making him a true master of his craft. Big Mother 4 celebrates the finest of Lemstra s work by collecting and condensing his pieces into a large format, limited edition monograph.
With my work I like to refer to the illustrative nature of primitive drawings and sculptures. What I find interesting about these is the distortion as a result of selective emphasis; parts of interest are emphasized, unimportant parts reduced or left out… A clash of intent, simultaneously assuming simplicity and complexity, randomness and reason, flaws and perfection. The purpose of which is to inspire a sense of joy and discovery.
