‘Scription’ by Nynke van Zwol

‘Scription’ by Nynke van Zwol                  

Nynke van Zwol (1972) graduated from the Wackers Academy of Fine Art Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in 2015.

Before studying Art, she graduated in Linguistics and has worked for several years as a clinical and forensic linguist. Language has always been an important factor in her life and work.

Her fascination with ancient undeciphered scripts has led to the construction of her own asemic script. Her paintings often take the shape of scrolls or book pages. She finds her inspiration for these shapes in medieval European manuscripts, antique Arabic calligraphy and old Japanese scrolls.

She often works with watercolor on paper, but recently started experimenting with acrylics on tyvek. The advantage of that very modern material is that it doesn’t have to be framed.

All pieces created in 2019.
