Art Description

Painting: Acrylic and Paint on Canvas and Wood.

Painting on linen, with 5 dancing girls. The backgound is made of layers of light grey an transparent white paint. The 5 hats of the girls are embroidered.
The great metropolitan area of the city is the main source of my inspiration and my paintings often have a hidden social message. I want my work to be a source of discovery where the viewer is increasingly finding more aspects that reveal themselves to him or her.

In my visual work, I am fascinated by the human in motion – my reflection of contemporary reality. 
I work in concepts; a clear idea is the essential foundation of my work.

I will often work with a concept for a period of many years, during which other nuances constantly emerge. My desire is always to go deeper than the visual image, the surface. My goal is to make the underlying more visible, and this goal places great importance on material used:

Making my own paint from original pigments can surprise with deep and vibrant tones.
The carrier is sometimes transparent. This creates depth, resulting in shadows.
I often work with textile additions such as patchwork, embroidery, holes and stitching.
I developed a fascination for textiles and ways of working with them as a fashion designer with Ollily and as a concept designer at Mexx before I became a visual artist.
