My work has quite a volatile appearance with often a toned down, subtle colour palette. I ask for the work to tell me not everything, but just one thing. They don't need to depict everything that I have in mind. I want them to be simple and lucid in their appearance to bring across to the viewer the feeling I experienced when looking at something.
Once I start working in the studio, the outside world starts fading, and the possibilities within painting become more significant. Painting becomes an ongoing process of associating on the original idea, associating on the visual outcome of the work itself and a continuance of pushing myself in the attitude towards painting.
