The main theme of my work lies in a curiosity for the human condition, the constant fluctuation of the human soul, its incompleteness, contradictions and strugglings. This inner landscape opens itself to me as infinite and fragmentary, and in my art I find it important to grapple with what is genuine and real under these many layers of complexity. I am working with these themes in relation to colour, the flatness of the canvas, and the paradox of how this opens into spacious content. I see the figures on my canvas as observers of life it self, without an escape from breath, heartbeat, dreams and anticipation of the unspoken.
