Emotional fantasy
Unexpected harmony
Lack of self-censorship
Bold observation
Arousal of the unconscious
Search for strong individual ideas
Sensitivity and complexity of the essential

Captivated by the inner world


I'm a person who talks about ideas. It's what I am and it makes me feel alive. This is not some extra thing or weird exception. I simply started doing this.

The inner world starts talking when you start improvising. It has been listening for your entire life. This is not just the babble of some superficial addiction. This is a voice intensified by experiences. Let it communicate and get out of the way.

A haunting image turns into something else. A word you overheard once a long time ago suddenly appears. A phrase or a fragment finds a new meaning.

I haven't forgotten or sold my own way of being.

Playing around with creative ideas affects my world view


If you google the word art, you will find plenty of arty graphics and hobby art. I could never just do something like that. I wouldn't be satisfied. Those are just some of the typical results.

Another thing I could never do is say I'm outside politics. We create politics, but it doesn't have to be typical politics.

I'm an observer inspired by the chemistry found in the body and the environment. I have to feed the subconscious and face creative problems without fear or apologies.

My works are suggestive. It's one of the reasons why I keep going back to my favourite images. I think the world needs strong images. The richness of these images is more important than any final explanation.

When you defend art, you are defending the warm connection with other people. That connection is complex and it is under the surface.

Why am I doing this


Creative work is more fun than fun.

I feel less lonely and anxious.

I want to achieve variety and intensity within limitations.

I want to show you that I actually care about these things.

I am exploring and arriving at my own emotional truth.

I want to show you what is in my DNA.

My hunger allows me to do this no matter what.

Being surprised by useful knowledge feels great.

This is my second chance after my mental breakdown.

I am trying to understand feelings I can never fully understand.
