description. Babette Cooijmans is an artist who lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium. In 1997 she received her master degree in the visual arts with a specialisation in printmaking at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. In her work she explores the experience of the landscape. She mainly uses lithography and silkscreen as tools for drawing and producing unique prints within a series. Her works are exhibited both nationally and internationally.

My work is the result of an on-going research and curiosity for pattern and structures in my close environment. I observe lines and shapes in the natural or constructed landscape that are traced back into autonomous signs. In their isolated abstract form these signs will trigger new meaning.

The heart of work consists mainly of unique prints and no editions. The ultimate printmaking characteristic of reproduction is consciously used to apply and exchange lines and shapes in different layers and different works. Embracing and playing the possibility of reproduction creates a new visual system.
