Balance

I am fascinated by the artistic and graphic portrayal of people. In this I am not just depicting what is seen but I am trying to give the human experience and feelings an expression. I aim to illustrate how joy or pleasure, pain or sorrow are expressed in our gestures, posture and movements. The balance of opposites which defines our lives like relation and separation, faith and doubt, fear and courage inspire my work.

To me drawing and painting are processes of convergence to the subject, and at the same time processes of abstraction and consolidation. Charcoal and crayons combined with tempera and oil colours give me the opportunity to search and change these processes in the construction of the picture.
