by andries van onck about the magic of places as rendered in pen and marker drawings

the "traces" in this pages sign my encounter with places: they document my marvel of their being, silent testimonies of history, of the people that built these towns, houses, temples. Some are well known monuments, others are modest constructions, some are imbedded in a vast scenery, others hidden in an offway corner. They aroused in me a sentiment of magic, inducing me to jott down these sketches.
