"Coastal Impressions" is a diptych on paper, already mounted in a off white mat and ready to frame. The bright and vibrant colours telling of coast and sea, of clear hot days on the beach at the blue and turquoise sea.
The colours are applied only with the palette-knife, sometimes thin (so that the white of the paper makes them shine even more), mostly pastose, what gives interesting strucures.
They are painted on acrylic paper (300g/sqm) with a mount in off-white and ready to frame. The size of each painting is 18 x 18 cm, with mount it is 30 x 30 cm. The paintings come without frame, the frames in the photograph are just examples!
Mixed media (acrylic, spray paint). Sealed with a glossy varnish. Signed on the front and signed and dated on the back.
18 x 18 x 0,2 cm (without mount)
30 x 30 x 0,2 cm (with mount)

I find my inspirations in colours and materials - for example in a beautiful deep turquoise mountain lake or in the washed-out grey of concrete in a city. Based on such impressions and inspirations I commence my work and my artwork often comes to life in little series. Each painting is unique and the creation and development of each painting is a time consuming and slow process, usually lasting many weeks and in some cases up to a few months.
My paintings are acrylic mix paintings, for example, acrylic paint with charcoal, oil pastels, pencils, spray paint and many other artistic materials. I often combine these materials with natural materials and objects from nature (e.g., leaf seeds) as well as with ash, sand or building materials such as grout or plaster.
My pieces of art are created informally. Each step builds on the previous step, leaving room for chance but also for corrections and erasures, until the final finished artwork has evolved as a composition of colour, shape, texture and surface.
Due to the complexity of my paintings and the interplay of (collage) materials, my works are not simply one-dimensional, rather they entice the viewer not just to explore them with their eyes but also to touch them.
My works of art are informal; they are my personal expressions of my experiences and impressions and each piece of art is truly unique and only one of its kind.
