I am free. Painting enables me to materialise my soul. Through this practice, I am able to share myself with the viewer.

I use colourful acrylics on several surfaces like panel or canvas. The subject is often my gesture and how it relates to its own physicality and the flat surface. I play with my process and I consider it as most important in my work. The choices that I intuitively have made are clearly visible. You’ll see drips, smudges, splashes and also more focused gestures. My work can be both abstract and figurative and sometimes becomes more tactile.

I’ve heard that ‘painting is dead’, but I haven’t heard that ‘painting is death’.
