« This series of paintings are all experiments in combining figurative with ab- stract elements.
The paintings are about inner conflicts and forces that sometimes bind us, make us explode or achieve great power over us.
In the paintings the subjects knowingly or unknowingly externalize their fears, angers and inner forces. »
« These paintings were done in preparation for the exhibition “ Cabinet of Curiosities” at the Cor Gallery. Cabinets of Curiosities were collections of drawings,paintings and medical or biological artefacts and objects of the 16th century.
I like the importance draughtsmen and painters had in this time. I like to think that they instead of objectively portaying plants, animals or foreign cultures, they maybe added some extra color and stucture and imagination to their drawings.
The whole installation was a combination of paintings, drawings and collages. »

dans une ville où il y aurait 200.000
logements vides et des dizaines de milliers
