Some information

The work is about fractions, small parts of a whole. And about light shining through an object, or reflecting on it.It refers to jewellery, quartz and minerals, chain links, and in a more abstract way to connected and linked forms. Beauty inspires me. It can be anything: forms, details, light, colours that catch my eye. It can be found in my direct environment and I find it in nature, but also in the use and combination of colours in magazines, in photographs or graphics; even in manuals. Alongside perceiving I feel an urge of creating: of turning it into paint. I always try different techniques to express the theme of my work. Technique is interesting to me in order to reach certain effects in a result I pursue. It plays an important role in the image as it determines a quality of the image. In big drawings I am often experimenting, searching for new forms and possibilities. Murals are mostly made for specific spaces/locations. This one was made for an exhibition, for a wall of 4,5 m x 20 m. It had to be done in one week, so I had to plan it beforehand and then paint it on location. It needed a good preparation and still was very exciting to do. I painted it with acrylic paint. Parts may look like they were sprayed but they’re not. The image is an abstraction of a chain link, as I actually painted the counterform of it. It was part of this exhibition, and it was my third mural in a link chain series. The painted object 42 x 30 x 2,2 cm is a serial product that is at the same time a unique work of art. Every single object in this series is painted on an MDF form with rounded 2 cm edges, each different from the other.Initially based on minerals, the layers of paint are abstract. The painting is about light, depth, and colour and its gradients.
