"By studying with students who had little interest in the same media as me forced me to speak and communicate about painting in a total different way than if they had all been painters. It was difficult, but it was the best education. Even today, a decade after my graduation, I still have conversations and reflections about my art practice from my time at Goldsmiths, and I believe that this is the best way to form an artist. It sure did help me to understand not only the way my artworks looked, but also what the content was about.
My research also involves delving deeper into the history of the painting, among others I have spent six months in Rome over the period of three years to study frescos and ceiling paintings in the Catholic church to closely study the mind in relation of painting, architecture and body. I have always strived to create a balance in between the abstract and the figurative. In the early paintings the figuration had a greater impact than today, where I made use of archetypes and symbols to create ‘mind images’ from an internal world. In 2018 I went to the residence Bethanien in Germany to study the German abstract expressionistic paintings, which became a turning point in my painting practice by tranformning them into a stronger abstract language."
