Painting for me is a continuous conversation with the outside world. This dialogue is only possible while I am in the studio. My thoughts are directed by the physicality of paint. The paintings emerge out of the intensity of colours and pigments that I use, its thickness, translucency, lightness or darkness. My work is deeply visceral. I am driven by what paint can do moreover, by what I can do with the paint.
The combination of textures, colours, light, shades and shapes add layers to the visual meaning in my work, and the movements of my brush becomes a phenomenon which guides our perception to the very energetic frequency that is driving my thoughts, and subsequently the actual art making.
