Equally obsessed with the built environment and the human figure, my figurative paintings are based on sketches and photographic studies and heavily influenced by architecture.
Working simultaneously on large canvases and experimenting on small boards, allows me to investigate a topic for months. In the end a body of work encompasses many pieces, while exploring a single subject or place. It is not movement or narrative that interests me. Rather than illustrating a momentary idea I want to emphasize the essence of a time and place one can fit into.
