About my artwork

"I do not really like to talk about my painting.

However, just to paint because it is beautiful or aesthetically, I do not find it meaningful.

I’m always looking for different layers in my paintings, ie. different ways for the viewer to see them on.

Ideally is if the viewer over time can see the other…

The Illusion

A series of three, almost as a triptych. I do not like to talk about my paintings, they should only be seen in the eyes of the beholder.

However, a few comments. In “The Dance “some got associations with an auctioneer or  smokestacks in NYC. In “The Process”, a pumping heart and in “The Departure” either to Auschwitz-Birkenau or a woman's womb ....…
