For as long as I can remember I have been wondering what the essence of life is.
I am driven by a desire to learn and create, an invisible power. Let’s call it aether,
as in ancient Greek philosophy. Since I started painting objects from my daily environment,
something has changed. While focusing on the physical presence of an object and translating
it through paint, I was taken on a fulfilling journey. I began to wonder about the origin of the object.
Who made it, with what materials and with what energy?
It’s about connectedness, an ongoing dialogue with the world. With and without words.
Whether I work with oil paint or watercolour, I always work with thin layers.
A fluid process that gives me access to the transparant world of aether.
It is not about giving meaning. It’s a way of being. Like art.
