I don’t think I am a ‘wall’ painter, but rather a ‘page’ painter. In fact, many of the titles of my paintings have to do with writing, they are quite literary. This is not to say that my work is an illustration – because the subject to be illustrated is missing. Nor is it didactic, because there is nothing to explain.

One might think that the images could introduce a story, or be part of a story, or illustrate something.

But that’s not the case. No such luck! Uncertainty, improvisation, the ‘mights’, the ‘perhaps’, are part of the search engine that generates my artwork. Sometimes I would like to do mimetic art, to paint something tangible, where matter is concrete matter, but then I regularly find myself directed towards the weightless, the borderless world of imagination, of inner vision.
