I like choosing all kinds of media to tell a story. Stories from my life, memories and subconscious. Everything is like a dream or an illusion to me. Throughout the creating process I observe a plot of my mind. Projects are afterimages of dying story-lines which I let go. It gives me an incredible imagination and inventiveness to explore myself and others. Painting has become a source of meditation.
Main topics in my art are past, disappearance, transparency, "tiny fissures in the continuous catastrophe". Reflections on human condition & criticism of the mainstream. At the same time there are glimpses of beauty in everyday life I try to capture. As an outsider I take the role of crazy jester who is able to laugh at the absurdities of modern life. I seem to balance between two aspects of life: suffering & happiness, beauty & ugliness, but very often I'd like to blur the boundaries between them.
