Professional Illustrator and Graphic Designer
In my previous work the focus has been on landscapes or people, often trying to capture the situation or feeling in every day life situations, either at home or on my travels. My interest has shifted more and more from the subject towards the color in the situation and the art I produce today is a natural trajectory of that.
The emotional experience in the viewing moment has become the primary focus. Many times the idea of a painting now comes to me as a need to get a certain color or color combination out of my system. This urge of a picture, often quite diffuse, can be present in my mind for a long time before it finally finds it way onto the canvas. Then the process is rather quick and intuitive. The original idea or mood starts the process, but then the painting itself takes over and dictates the way forward, and I am mostly just a tool at the will of the painting.
