In a world where we hurry all the time, we forget to have natural expreriences. With a background in history I try to grab colors, symbols and ancient cultures to make a connection between then and now. And frankly……they look-a-like if we are willing to see it. Yes, we have changed as humans, but our foundation remains. I am always trying to change my styles and mediums, but the colours and symbols of the earth are always visible.
When I moved in 2017 I destroyed most of my old abstract works. They reminded too much of feeling rejected by my parents. But I still have a kind of longing for this past because it feels safe. That is why, if you look at my work, you sometimes might get a sentimental or depressed feeling. But it is sentiment. It is the past, it is gone. We have to let things go. A fresh start. Re-inventing myself and my way of working. In my works of the past years you feel and see the shift from works that are dominated by darkness and anger, towards intimacy, vurnerability and curiosity in my last works. At the moment I am rediscovering an old tranfer technique. As you will see in my latest works, I am trying to get close to a secret recipe.
