I love to visit magnificent places, immersing myself in different cultures and to return home with an empty wallet but a rich heart and a backpack full of memories and impressions. Travelling to remote places has also meant having to adapt and become a part of new families, friendships and cultures. All these have created memories and experiences combined with all the old, pre-parental-generation-memories that influence me, in the now through an epigenetic way and are influencing my multidisciplinary art practice. My current research lies within the expanded practice of painting, analogue photography and sound. I am interested in the discourse of how contemporary painting can enhance art practice in this time where the flood of digital information and images are everywhere. Furthermore, I am interested in the possibilities analogue photography offers, how it can be used in variouse aspects of painting and also because of the limited amount of time before the film ceases to exist completely.
I truly believe that everything you do with joy and love will help to create an inspiring, peaceful and thoughtful environment and my aim is to carry these thoughts of happiness as far around the world as possible.
