ARTWORK > Art work

In my work I am setting up a reality that seems at the first glance to confuse rather then to charm, but spent more time with, one can be attracted or distracted by it. I want to engage with painting in a way that has a value in the intellect yet leaving freedom for the childlike careless way of looking at painting without the burden of history. By placing myself in the uncomfortable position where what I create does not always correspond to my visual satisfaction, I am tapping into unknown territory where the mind and the eye seem to be in perfect harmony with the unbalanced reality.
