'Reconstructions of a Past Still to Come'. A series of images depicting the evolving refugee crisis in it's own colorful but melancholic way. A crisis I witnessed up close in country's like Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Libanon,Turkey, Greece, Slovenia, and France during my work as a cameraman for Dutch current affairs television shows. Trying to catch the characters in the ever fluctuating public and personal opinion concerning the challenging times we face. Hoping to be able reconstruct the evolution of the shared past that awaits us. Paintings will be put on sale once the series is completed.

France, 1978, cameraman, filmmaker and visual artist living and working in Amsterdam. As a television cameraman I probably filmed some 400 reports in over 50 countries during the past fifteen years. I covered anything from natural disasters, warzones and diseases to political events, music-videos and short documentaries. These travels, I feel, gave me an interesting look into humanity and our global society. I was able to witness up close what most of us will only learn about through media. Back home I found I was eager to transfer the stories I encountered into something more lasting than television: Painting.------------------------------------ Inspired by the expressionist movements of the early 20th century, the works by Albert Camus on the artist and his time, Sigmund Freud's ideas of the conscious versus the unconscious mind and contemporary heroes like Marlene Dumas and Jenny Saville, I try to combine the technical and esthetic aspects of painting with a documentation of our rapidly changing global identity.
