Welcome to my artist website!
After finishing my Fine Art Studies at the Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam in ’99, I continued investigating using water affecting my images.
In the imaginary worlds I create, the suggestive images evoke confusion despite the serene stillness. In my work I try to capture and depict an inner landscape in an outer form. These”figures” are in a sense a kind of self-reflection.
Water is a very important part of my work. Experimenting with water and trying to control its impact on the image is the main core of my research for over the past 20 years.
Water sometimes tend to abstract forms within the figurative image, thereby giving the images a somewhat surreal and fairy-tale appearance. These new ‘uncontrollable’ chapes water causes, free the image and helps me to visualize normally invisible complex signals, thoughts and emotions and capture them together in one image.
My work is a comprehensive circle of people, nature, balance and underlying dimensions between reality, dream, desire … and everything in between. A surrealistic biotope where “the cruel and the beautiful” unite.
A small selection of my works are shown on this page. For my complete portfolio select the portfolio button on the topmenu.
All works are secured in a limited edition of 7 pieces and delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity with the edition number and signed by the artist.
