In the ordinary there are often elements so absurd that we don’t even notice them
In this series of paintings I have used the camera to capture that which only crop up when you are least expecting it. Scenes involving certain qualities that I cannot define, but that I recognize when I see them. I then investigate how I can use painting to convey the experience.
Before, I almost only painted portraits. There are similarities between those and the environments I paint presently. They revolve round the same kind of looking, and the subjective gaze.
The painted image is silent and motionless without beginning or end. This is why I find painting suitable for depicting states and not actions.
