If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Painting, Performance, Photography
I am...
As a starting point for my work I use both my own photographs and anonymous pictures found at flea markets, in books, magazines and on the internet.
I trained as an artist at the Art Academy in Arnhem (NL), and later went on to become assistant of Anselm Kiefer in France in 1995.
I have exhibited widely in London, Berlin, New York and Amsterdam. I participated at the 53rd and the 54th Venice Biennale, in 2009 and 2011, in collateral events.
In 2010 I won joint first prize for best artist at the UK National Open Art Competition, juried by Gavin Turk. I was shortlisted for the John Moores Painting Prize in 2012 and exhibited at the Liverpool Biennial.
In 2017, I was awarded the Luxembourg Art Prize.
In my work over the years I have explored ideas concerning ontology, transience, religion and history.
Many of my paintings involve architecture in some form: motel rooms, waiting rooms, dilapidated buildings, usually devoid of human presence, often provoking feelings of nostalgia and contemplation.
Artists I like
Adrian Ghenie, Daniel Pitín, Anselm Kiefer

Ja vooral doen, fijn! Ik heb nog eens naar de Aurora serie gekeken, ik vind het bijzonder mooi. Zo verstild en in mysterie. Weet je trouwens dat Kiefer mij als enige kunstenaar met zijn werk aan het huilen heeft gebracht? Het was ergens in Koln volgens mij, 'k weet het niet zeker. Innenraum.
