René van Asch uses countless words in his works; the series of words written on the paper are an expression of his psychological torment. When at his studio, René succeeds in putting his feelings onto paper. These are not emotions of joy, happiness and pleasure, but feelings associated with pain, death and the hospital visits that dominate his life. René also likes to use the room in which he is working. After drawing on the walls in his studio, his supervisors decided to apply a second layer to his work space. This way his drawings can be preserved and moved.
