The last two years I spent a lot of time in nature. How this influenced my work and the outcome of this I wil be showing on This Art Fair.

Transience and vulnerability are recurring elements in my work. These are expressed in my process and choice of subject, often inspired by nature. The process involves painting and painting over again. Some parts I leave and others I remove. This creates a layering movement, from an image to fading, to dissolving. My use of transparent and opaque parts, warm and cool colours, different sizes of shapes and structures creates space.

Another important part of the work is rhythm. This could arise from an image that I have seen before or something that I have heard. Music brings me into the right concentration. When the right rhythm is found, the work is given direction and indicates which way it should go.

The work unfolds as a mental space in which past time becomes tangible in the form of solidified paint.
