I am interested in all forms of artistic expression and I try to find my own artistic expression, especially in drawing, tempera-oil painting and monotype. My approach usually follows a three-step process:
- Pause - because a subject impresses and occupies me;
- Hold on - as a sketch or photo;
- Convert - into a "picture" of it
Each of my paintings has a real background, is free in the execution, but always experimentally influenced by the respective technique, the material and the "picture" carrier.
Artistic role models are currently Per Kirkebey and his sovereign use of color, Nicolas de Stael with his combination of abstraction and representationalism and El Greco with his courage to individuality.
For the future, I imagine experimenting with the connection between "image" and "sculpture".
