"My paintings reflect the stages of life every human being has to deal with. Without avoiding the difficulties in life, physically and or mentally, I mostly focus in the work on the possibilities, the growth, movement and the beauty of life. The work is abstract, open for interpretation, but the viewer will see visual aspects of nature. We are nature. With my project “Net drawings”, I explore the fragility of the human being. I reveal the possibilities of creating something different through destruction and repair of the net. I use the net as a symbol for life. The process of destruction becomes a source of creativity. By using mixed media and by experimenting with the act of burning, I explore the various stages of decay."
