Artist State­ment

Art, to me, means feel­ing free from hav­ing to func­tion. Most of us enjoy the feel­ing of hav­ing a phys­i­cal expe­ri­ence and there­by feel­ing alive, e. g. when being at the sea­side, swim­ming, feel­ing the wind blow­ing through our hair, and there­by being con­nect­ed with nature. These sen­su­al expe­ri­ences make our lives intense. I cap­ture these seascapes and oth­er top­ics of nature and the feel­ings they evoke with intense colours on can­vas. It may be a sense of melan­cho­lia, eupho­ria, wilder­ness, chaos, or seren­i­ty. The paint­ings recon­nect us with nature; first­ly with our envi­ron­ment — and there­by moti­vate us to pro­tect it, and sec­ond­ly with our own nature; our feel­ings, our body, our sen­su­al­i­ty — with every­thing that sup­ports us to be our­selves — and there­fore to be happy.
