My work aims to counteract a sense of disquietude in times when boundaries between the personal and the collective space have been radically redefined. I have long been preoccupied with the topic of identity and belonging. A lot of my art depicts "scapes" only occasionally alluding to the human presence, places of wishful thinking, expressed in idealised versions of familiar views. I use colour both as an expression of emotional release and a platform for conceptual thought, that tries to immerse viewers in beautiful but ultimately alien, fairy tale universes.
I use digital tools to create my work. It is the outcome of a process of non-linear decision-making. I generate, select, play with a multitude of layers of colour, which come to life in the interplay between transparency, filters and blending.
The output is usually a print - something tangible and real that is here and now, and embodies the long journey that led to this step.
