About Marcel van Eeden

Working within a set of self-imposed parameters, Marcel van Eeden has created drawings that question the way history is codified and recorded. According to his many rules, van Eeden must make a new drawing every day, and all the drawings must be based on found images and text originating on a specific date before he was born. To achieve the graphic novel quality of his illustrations, van Eeden uses pencil or ink on paper, each work a part of a non-linear narrative in which fictional characters randomly reappear in a way that evokes the unreliability of memory.
