An artist’s statement
I like to create new, original and unexpected images in my work, drawing, painting and photography. Whereby the human ( mostly the woman) always states in the central in my work. Just because i'm so fascinated in the humanity, the human body and our daily events, play the emotions beside the human body the most important role in my work, which it often leads to creating of unexpected or shocking results. Hereby is mostly worked from the unconscious mind which creates many of contradiction that not only shows from the deepest content or the purpose of an artwork, but also the used colours and the style. Through my versatility I do not really have a fixed technique because I love discoveries and renovations, naturally the work remains an self reflection. Dreams and freedom are very important aspects in my life and so in my work, it especially going about thoughts, ideas and desires to the other reality or the world, to the other humanity without boundaries because I don't believe in boundaries in the art. Identity and seeking to the identity, who am I? who is an human? I work gladly from my soul and deepen myself in the humanity in general. My goals as an artist ‘’ except that this is a great way to free my emotions and dreams’’ I like the other (spectator) also make him into thinking, touches the spectator, attracts him to the theme and him to convince. Lastly, I love making of real art because not all we daily see what art is called is art but I want to make the real one.
