VIEW IN MY ROOM
I watch this painting every day in my living room and I love it. My work is connected to the region I live in and to its history, to the “golden age” of the region. Paintings, tapestries, decorations, deemed “kitsch” today were adapted versions and provincial transcriptions of items from larger cultural centres. I allude to pseudo-versions of these in the language of contemporary art, with incorporated elements of pop and street art, drawing parallels between time periods and the effervescence of trends.

My work is closely connected to the region I live in and to its history. The period between the second half of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century is considered to be one of the golden ages of the region. The most visible evidence of this period observed today can be found in architectural buildings (public buildings, churches and private residences) that remain. The evidence of these styles was not only visible on the outside of these buildings and homes. The decoration of the interior, the furniture and everyday personal items also reflected the inhabitants’ social status. Aside from masterpieces, one could also find paintings, tapestries, decorative items, utensils, etc., which would today be considered “kitsch,” as they were often the adapted versions and provincial transcriptions of works and items from larger cultural centres. I make allusions to pseudo-versions of these items in my work. My attitude toward them is complex. At times I treat them with melancholy by projecting utopian views of the past, the “good old days.” Anachronisms can also be found in my work. They are present with copious amounts of cynicism – many of the older pieces seem humorously naive. I place them in a contemporary frame, joining them to elements of pop- and street-art.
