Despite the abstraction, the work is accessible and easy to understand. The abstract work is a logical consequence of my way of working. I mainly paint my feelings. The canvas I am working on provides the subject for the next painting. The most recent work is hushed and more contemplative. Remarkably enough, the starting point for all paintings is the background. This strongly determines the atmosphere of the paintings. It has also become increasingly important. That has to be all right, otherwise I can't go any further. The background is applied in soft, gradient colours. On this I paint my story in acrylic with thick pasty paint. The paint is so thick in the background that shadows create subtle depth. The paint winds across the canvas in narrow, drawing-like swaths, creating powerful undulating movements that invite you to muse and look again.
