My personal view:

Making a painting or object, based on imagination Ė fiction or non-fiction Ė is my biggest inspiration. The things I make are based on pictures I absorb in my mind, like subjects or symbols from a movie, books or pictures. One little detail, an abstraction, gives me enough starting points to create a work of art. I often get inspired by the classical ages and cultures. I express my inspiration Ė also coming from treasures, old customs and colourful life forms from now and then Ė in symbolism, reflection, peace, silence and spiritualism.The composition of objects and paintings is bases on mixed techniques. The objects are build up by rest material, I often prefer weathered parts. Most of the time thereís no obvious plan. My fantasy is a reservoir of observations and stimulated by structures, colour, pencil strokes and al kinds of material. It is possible that the origin plan, during the creative process, can turn round in a complete other direction.For me, itís a condition that Ė in the end - everything is surprising. Itís not necessary to search for a recognizable style. In fact, a piece of art is never completed, but at a certain moment youíll have to call it a day. Why does there have to be an explanation for everything? Is it interesting, repulsive? Suit yourself!

Often I have no idea what Iíam going to create, and when I do know; finally it turns out to be something else.

Is it really interesting when you beforehand already know what you are going to create?

I create things my way! I donít have the patience to do an in-depth study of subjects, just because some art-authorities think everything has to be done in a certain way or certain style.

My memory is a repository of remembered observations. They are the bases of my work of art.

In a way everything is interesting. To often people see or listen to superficial.

For me a work of art is never complete, but there is a time you have to call it a day.
