Why we like it

While chaos and turmoil in ordinary life might overshadow perceptions of magic and enchantment, Kokke’s oeuvre encourages to remember infancy and imagine a realm where archaic and contemporary merge. He enriches pigments with unconventional materials such as chalk, wood dust or egg yolk, resulting in a thick, grainy texture reminiscent of ancient frescoes.
