My paintings and installations consist of multiple layers of patterns and colour arrangements. These are sourced from various visual motives, from leisure culture and tourism. Somewhere between home and away we look for consternation but also for recognition. We long for a home away from home that feeds our hunger for adventure.
The warm colours and the graphic iconography take you to a familiar place. On the way there, however, you stumble upon some frayed edges. Some paintings are cut out of their frame, nonchalantly hanging out to dry, where others may be rolled and piled up on top of each other.
Joyfully and energetically, I cut, paint, print and endlessly arrange and rearrange found materials and clippings until a constellation appears – in which I ‘unfinish’ the finished painting.
