Artist Statement

I make mixed media paintings with oil and acrylic. I would describe these as dreamlike and lyrical visions, combinations of direct observation and traces imprinted on my mind. In my paintings, I often deal with our temporal and physical experiences and the human relationship with nature and history. A Live natural experience or snapshot from the world of social media may present itself to me as a fascinating observation. As I paint, I combine and juxtapose observations, sometimes in a rather strange way. I also use my paintings to pose questions on the visible and the invisible, and the significance of the two. If all goes well, the observations I juxtapose may take on a new association in the viewer's interpretation and frame of reference, or invoke a feeling or a memory.
