My work is about the sensations that arise, when we feel the unseen and untouchable. It is particularly about the things we can only feel within our bodies and the bodies of our fellow human beings; fundamentally the sensitivity in and around us.
Before I put anything on paper I absorb as much as I can of my surroundings, which includes smells, feelings, interconnectivity and the sheer essence of beings. I observe, listen and connect with the details which appear in nature, like the sounds of friction between water and wind. These observations influence any perception that I translate into colors and shapes.
With my recent work “soulseeds” I capture the vibrant souls of humans. I am convinced that the real connection between me and other human beings is not visible to the eye; it is only felt and perceived with my soul and mind. I am creating visibility for this connection that is hidden from our spatial sight.
The challenge is to bring understanding for the boundless intensity we have as human beings. We are unlimited in our emotions towards ourselves, our fellow humans and the things that sometimes just seem to be in the air. My wish is to be a mediator between the unseen and the observer. I believe, as an artist, it is my purpose to connect these two worlds.
