Statement

My work is driven by my interest in contradictions. Contradictions between issues like ratio and emotion,
reality and surreality, identity and anonymity, uniqueness and copy, etc.

Based on my emotions I make paintings and drawings driven by physical gesture and emotions.
Based on my rationality I work with computer programs and digital techniques.

The tension between 'self-making' and 'random origination' intrigues me and forms the basis for the way in which I work.
Whether it is through painting, drawing, digital techniques or installations.
From my interest in anything beyond the known limits, I have studied and exhibited in countries such as the Netherlands,
England, France and Senegal.
