In general I don’t work in a certain style or technique, rather the look and feel of the work corresponds to the content I want to convey. Lately I’ve become interested in breaking out of the rectangular border, extending into space and building painting-objects that include different light sources with combinations of glass and oilpainting. My mostly figurative paintings and installations combine found material with invented imagery. I create narratives which deal with (self-)perception, memory and a sense of time on an individual as well as a collective level.
