Blue sky, a bright landscape (maybe it is winter?), water, pink flowers - "Invitation to a mental excursion" is an abstract painting, but the brushstrokes and colours invite you to explore a landscape. A large piece for a large space and an eyecatching statement piece! The background is linen with a transparent ground. The linen is still visible at several parts of the painting, what is an important part of the painting. The natural, organic look and texture of the linen underlines the character of the colours.
Varnished with a silky varnish (Lascaux with UV Protection). Ready to hang with a hanger on the back. Signed on the front and signed and dated on the back.
140 x 120 cm | 55,2 x 47,2 in.

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.
