Human nature, that is what is central to my work. Man has great influence on his environment, culturally-determined and natural processes are virtually indistinguishable from each other. These processes are reflected in the creative process of my paintings. I alternate extremely careful decisions with intuitive interventions and only partly manageable actions. Each painting is the result of interacting forces. In essence, my work is about connecting. I want to make (pictorial) images in which differences are not erased, but in which meaningful and productive encounters of the seemingly conflicting are central. Images that are complex and at the same time clear eyes. Images with a logic that can not be named. The growing and building, flowing and colliding are brought together syncretically. Some new works in the exhibition are inspired by a journey I made in the spring to the volcanic island of Lanzarote. The whimsical and almost extraterrestrial landscape made a deep impression on me, the paintings that arose afterwards did not depict the landscape but they refer to it.
