    Rick Poynor writes: 'In a poster for Villa Basta, Marenthe Otten scatters casually drawn decorative lettering across a photograph of an elderly woman wearing the traditional clothes of a peasant (photo: Verse Beeldwaren). The crudely formed letters carry associations of folk art, while also recalling the doodled letterforms found in contemporary work by designers such as Ed Fella in the US and M/M in France. The graphic and photographic layers clash awkwardly, yet the poster still knits together as an image.'
