Thinking about my art
Painting for me is giving space.
Giving space to what is yet silent, what is waiting patiently, what is
During the working process I am guided by a promising spark, hoping to let
come to the surface what dreams unknowingly.
The process is often subject to change. A movement that is impetuous and
inquiring can often intervene or reverse intentions. Being spontaneous and
silent, energetic and patient, agreeing and contradicting are part of life.
Trustful I enter into a dialogue with new existences.
Hands become leaves,
leaves become feathers,
feathers become feet,
feet become flowerbuds,
buds become paddles,
paddles become bells,
a bell a wing,
a wing a rattling gourd,
a gourd pearl,
pearl stone fruitkernel.
I usually start with a blurred, unknowing surface and
an idea of a precise line, letting them explore a
movement together that is round, playful and simple.
