'High and Away'
90cm x 64.1cm (35.4 x 25.2 inch) , from limited edition of 5 plus 2AP

"There is a small coastline village, distant and isolated and rarely visited by strangers. A village with strange residents where life is usually predictable and calm, some could even say quite boring. One day a visitor, while trying to get away from the storm, got lost and while in panic, and stressed out, his recognizable spots fell off and got scattered over the village, causing all sorts of problems for the scared villagers.

My works are complex photo collages based on my own photography. I have been collecting photographs for over a decade. It is a long process of combining carefully selected photography fragments and illustrated parts, which are then transferred to computer and digitally painted.

"I am inspired by my surroundings and I see potential in various everyday things and relations, people, nature, architecture, even food. I see them sometimes as fragments of my work.
