Observations, memories, sentiments and all things fleeting become more visible as such by the speed of digital media. I want to capture the experience of the ephemeral in classical painterly themes. Of my personal subject matter, I only paint what is universally recognizable, with a minimal handwriting and a colour composition that is rooted in the interplay of flatness and depth. In my paintings front becomes back, far becomes near, and everything seems to continuously shift places.
