Love of the language has put Rita Hulsman on the track of writing, which led to numerous publications about the arts and cultural history. Underneath went a constant stream of poetic notes, which resulted in a few collections of poems. In 2006, due to a possibility to take part in a visual art exhibition, Rita started to combine words and images into a digital collage, transferred on small wooden panels or larger banners. Since that time Rita took part in various exhibitions in the Netherlands. Inspiration comes from many sides: the sound of water cooking, the smell of grass, a memory, a postcard, a piece of music, an old tub or a few words from somewhere. Usually the poetry comes first, completed by a collage of images to give the poetry an extra layer. But sometimes, like in this entry, the image comes first.
