The excessive availability of information in the digital age and the constant comparison with our peers inspires me to create my works. Paintings, that force both me (during the process of creation) and later on the audience to spend more time studying them.
We live in a world where everything seems to exist already, where everything has been done before by someone who did it better or faster than you. We are constantly made to feel that we are missing out on things. We are seduced to quick and thoughtless consumption. In this environment, it is no wonder that not only do we leave marks on earth, but our environment also leaves a mental mark on us.
The flood of visual and emotional stimuli and the resulting feelings of helplessness, confusion and insecurity are presented on my canvases in the form of overloaded compositions in which the size of the formats, the variety of textures and the vibrant colors play a central role.
The request to be more patient, resourceful and self-aware is reflected in the lengthy and repetitive nature of the process of my work. Nothing is wasted, neither an idea nor a material. For example, dried-up colors from a previously painted image are reused for collages, which are then digitized and manipulated and serve as the basis for new images. You could say that I recycle my own thoughts and processes.
