Statement

I am fascinated by surfaces and constellations of things. This two-fold interest is the ground from which my artistic practice grows, stretching between the two poles of naturalistic painting and conceptual drawing.
Starting out with studies of intricate shapes, artificial and shiny material, and colourful play of light, I soon broadened my focus from the surfaces of things to the structures beneath and between. Striving to understand what characterises a thing beyond its surface gives me the impulse to develop an abstracting stylistic idiom, which is sometimes more related to surreal, puzzle-like clusters of picture elements than it is to the representation of a specific situation.
My current artistic occupation is hugely stimulated by the theme of the Garden. I love the diversity of inspiration that this subject gives me: vibrant colours, varied spatial experiences as well as historical and symbolic considerations allow for a multi-faceted approach that keeps me enthused.
