About The Artwork

This painting depicts Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda in the American movie 'Easy Rider' with two skulls planted on their bodies. This work is based on a destroyed painting by artist duo Sardine and Tobleroni. The American dream saves the world, America as the world police is the subject matter of this painting. It is a mixed-media painting consisting of a cut out poster, acrylic paint and graphite pen. The technique expresses the rather fragile and fickle but at the same time firm ideological system (an American identity) that has been created over decades with the help of the entertainment industry. Are the Easy Riders bringing death to the word or do they represent death? The painting poses many questions regarding our political past, present and future.

My work is very versatile, in general process-based and sits at the intersection of different practices. However, I enjoy painting the most as it not only allows me to express my ideas most directly but it is also a great tool to explore and develop ideas. My painting work investigates pictorial composition and aesthetics with a focus on the notion of the concrete and the abstract, clash, balance, anarchy & the dialogue between opposites. My work is very versatile, in general process-based and sits at the intersection of different practices. An essential aspect of process is the element of change including new directions and abandonment (of work) which gives my work a seemingly peripatetic character. The quality of my work is not so much within the single pieces of work but rather in my overall approach and understanding. One of my principle interests lies in social constructionism, the analysis and documentation of (cultural, social) heritage, i.e. the (social, political, cultural and historical) makeup of people. Whether it manifests itself in the form of a drawing, a collage, a painting, an installation, an action or any other medium, my work is never so much about the discrete unit of work but rather the work as a part of the gesamtkunstwerk, the gesamt-story. My understanding of the gesamtkunstwerk in its truest sense is the entirety of my work as a cohesive body. It is very important to me that my work represents myself, my way of thinking and my opinions. Staying true to myself and having integrity is a very important aspect of my practice. I don't produce art for the masses, nor have I any desire to ride on the band wagon of current trends in the contemporary art world. I am currently working on a painting series titled Delphine & Jay: the Concrete & the Abstract. These are process-based works on canvas & paper. The work explores as the title suggests concrete and abstract ideas/concept focusing on clash, balance, anarchy & the dialogue between opposites.
