Huub Schilte and Jacqueline Portielje have been intensively exploring the rich possibilities of the computer as an artistic medium since 1994. The computer serves as both their darkroom and a drawing and painting tool. Schilte & Portielje work without a preconceived plan or subject. They both select fragments of images from a digitalised library they have built up over the years. With their selected image fragments, they compose their own dream world in black and white, filled with endlessly captivating creatures. The duo constantly explores the boundaries between fantasy and reality, giving it a certain surreal quality. The uncertain nature of the world they have created, makes it one in which you would like to get lost forever.
