Painting: Acrylic, Watercolor, Ink, Glass on Paper, Wood, Glass.
I like working with materials that can create unusual effects. My pictures are painted exclusively on handmade paper, making each of my pieces an exceptional and individual work of art.
While these pieces have been executed primarily using water colour techniques, I have also incorporated acrylic and Chinese brush painting techniques in my latest paintings. I have deliberately avoided using backgrounds in order to give the impression of lightness and clarity. While this reduces the theme “Nature“ to a graphic, it nevertheless creates a picturesque level. In this way the pictures attain a certain floating effect and lightness. To achieve this style painting I’ve explored the art of Egon Schiele and the woodcuts of Albrecht Dȕrer. The intention is to develop transparency and is clearly recognisable in the way in which the gradual reduction of the dark background has been achieved.
