I always wanted to avoid the landscape, but bang, there’s that horizon again. Then I get annoyed and try to break it.
When I’m doing something, I get an almost inflationary number of ideas, a flood that I wait out to see what remains at low tide.
I use material as colour and I don’t tell stories with my pictures. I also deal with questions of where painting ends and when sculpture begins.
Central aspects of my work are structure and texture, as well as the resulting space.
As much involvement as possible, as little constraint as possible. Then it works out! The rest is an encore.
Can a picture exist only for itself? Or does it only exist when you look at it, thus creating a space between the work and the viewer?
You see things better when your gaze is not always directly focused on something, but looks past and takes the space between things just as important.
It is what it is. It’s about the perception of that which is easily overlooked, but which exists. Beautiful comes from looking.
