Artist statement.

Interaction between mortality and immortality.

The moment of visualizing ,the visualization , plays an important role in my art. The image ,the meaning , their relation to one another, the emphatic impression of the image. These are elements that are very important. Materials,ways of handling etc. are less important.Not only the idea but also the way of giving concrete form to the idea is what it makes interesting. The different layers of meaning that originate in this way emphasize the symbolic character of the images. My way of working is characterized by a constant flow of drawings and notes , from which images slowly develop . These images are represented in paintings and litho's as if they were frozen moments. Taking a retrospective view of the images that have evolved thus far , they seem to be an interaction between mortality and immortality.
