It's all about rhythm, rhyme, order, nature and communication.


In my work I often depict people in situations, in groups or by themselves, passively immersed in their occupation. These individuals convey a contemporary type of loneliness. They have been captured while quietly residing in an indefinable, although usually recognizable, environment. It seems as if time stands still for a little while. In my most recent works no people are depicted, but the presence of man is tangible. What remains is a situation, a context, with a critical undertone that refers to environmental issues.

The paintings are not only about their subject, (non-)communicating people, they are also about painting and paint, about layers, about depth and arrangement, about organic forms and digital rythms. About aesthetics.

My palette of possibilities reaches beyond paint: digital techniques and interaction can be used in the artworks as fits. I create paintings, interactive installations and a combination of the two. By removing the old boundaries between design and painting, I notice that I am tapping into a visual reservoir that I benefit from in everything I do.
As an artist I like to use painting, graphic arts and digital techniques so that I get inspiration from all kinds of visual cultures as well as from the slowness of paint. My visual language is created in those cross-pollinations.
