De Wit’s drawings are highly evocative, thanks to the effective application of various materials, including pencil, ink, chalk and pastel. They look like stills from a documentary about a strange world, where remnants of manmade products float amid seaweed and other organic growths. From the wiry tree trunk in the foreground hang stems of wheat and feather-shaped leaves and on the left there appears to be a cicada – the loud insect from temperate and tropical regions. Metal machine components, tubes and bullets lie elsewhere and on the right sits a robot-like man. Nature and technology seem to have fused, as in fantasy films.
