About

Artist Statement

 

I explore the human form with an interpretation of multiple forms emphasis on colour. Aiming to find a balance between figurative and abstraction, as those are attributes of nature, and therefor human figure too. The micro elements, the fractules as indivisible parts of the whole. A metaphysic approach to the complicated kaleidoscope of the human being.
