About The Artwork

In my work I try to research the relationship between the figure and dreamlike spaces. The landscape is located in nomansland, it hybernates a detachement but also a distant future. The woman is in between the surrendering to the enviremont and the awkardness of not knowing. I like to experiment with this balance of uneasiness and opennes of the identity at the crossroad in the landscape.

I create brightly colored landscapes in which I explore a sense of adventure, freedom and paradise. By portraying often solitary figures, I try to express the need for independence. In a search for utopian worlds, my work navigates between romantic longings for times gone by, depicting rebellious eccentrics and moments of the detached sublime. I usually start my work by making collages of found photos and photos from my private archive. The use of photo negatives enhances the feeling of nostalgia, but also creates abstraction and detachment. One of the striking features of my work is my use of colour. I was gifted this sense of color by my mother, who works with textiles. I will also often use fabric expression, texture layers, contrasts and patterns as a reflection of my heritage. Apart from my need for autonomy this gives my work a very personal and homely touch.
