Artist Statement:
My paintings and drawings are about space and atmosphere. Starting from what I call the "post-industrial landscape" they proceed to move further and further away until the images hover somewhere between representation and abstraction. The metamorphosis that transpires is not planned but arises through the process of painting. This process of painting entails stripping away the initial imagery and laying it to waste. Shapes and lines take on various phenomenons and the formal associations open a unique poetic interpretation. Finding that tension between representation and abstraction creates the mystery that I am striving for.
