Within my works I portray specific moments I experience, in an attempt to express a certain atmosphere, mental impressions or distant memories. I am interested in figurative visual representation. The different characters in my works exist separately, or interact with others in various scenes and situations.
Some of the paintings are dark and murky, while others are light and colorful. I draw inspiration from daily situations that catch my attention, from people I encounter, from memories or images that influence me. Some paintings express a very distinct sense of locality introducing street signs or specific places from my close environment, while others are ambiguous and fantasmatic. My works express a sense of voyeurism, alienation, longing and suspense. They are quick, intuitive and expressive, incorporating bold brush strokes and strong outlines, while also inducing a dream like sensation a disturbing mixture of reality and fiction.
