My work is based on color. Material color, but also color as a reflection, changing with lights and the position of the spectator. Color as a medium, transmitting feelings and emotions.
My goal is to achieve a pure pictorial language.
There are things that can strongly touch me. These things can be of different kinds. It can be the slow processes of nature work, a particular expression of art or even something being in a process of transformation.
The question I’m asking myself is why these things affect me. And, in my paintings, I’m trying to find an answer.
