I'm fascinated by this world of images, whether it is a physical reality translated into an image or an image translated into a physical reality.
Our worldview is mainly formed by images. Imagery that tells us what is, was, where and how.
I see my paintings as depictions of the experiential world of contemporary imagery. Working towards the point where everything comes together, paint, painter and the painted. I'm looking for painterly mental shortcuts to create the most honest depiction possible. Paint remains paint, and every act visible. To me a painting is merely an assembly of strokes, surfaces and stains. I make use of our personal archive of imagery, in order to reconnect them to our reality.Terug
