“A place where visual art meets words; it happens in the artbook ‘Sincerely hidden’ by artist Gini van den Berg and poet Jan van Leeuwen. A full-colour poetry collection with beautiful watercolour illustrations and fine line art.” (Text: Palmslag)

Sincerely hidden (OPRECHT VERBORGEN) is the art book, which will be published in April 2024, in which Gini and Jan van Leeuwen connect drawings and poems.

This joint work deals with themes such as our need for connection, the complexity in relationships and showing yourself in all your vulnerability.

This is what you can expect: “The colours and lines of Gini’s drawings flow naturally into Jan’s words, as it were, and together give a visual meaning to hidden layers.

The imaginative language and poetic illustrations give the reader a unique experience and mirror what is going on in their own lives.”
