We are always in between something. Morning and evening. Yesterday and tomorrow. In the rearview mirror, we can glimpse the landscape just passed. Everything is still before us. Being is an opportunity. My paintings reflect all of this.
I feel like a chameleon, floating, melting into the auras of other people. On my canvases, things in space and time are transformed into colors and shapes. We live in an uncertain age, full of manufactured threats and empty promises. In my paintings, these appear as gloom, as somber darkness. But countering darkness is light, the hope of something better and more humane.
For me, painting is a visual and philosophical dialogue with the world around me. The significance of space, light and color in my work has deepened over the years. I process things through my emotions; I am a kindred spirit of the storytellers of the Romantic age, whose art was inspired by feelings.
