THE PINK SERIES, LONDON, 2020/21
The Pink SERIES started in London in 2020. When you work with fluorescent pink you soon realise how many colours it is friends with. It almost works anywhere, in any situation.
These wooden panels are all quite small, only 15x15cm in size.
NEIGHBOURS is a series of small square paintings, mainly 30x30cm. The aim was to show the relationship of colors, shapes and marks who all occupy their own defined individual space on the square and at the same time come together as a whole piece of art. Just like neighbours do.
URBAN WALLS, GELSENKIRCHEN, 2022
URBAN WALLS is meant to put the spotlight on the walls around us when we’re out and about in our cities, in our towns. In our neighbourhoods.
I‘ve looked at a lot of walls and tried to imagine what happened to them. Find the little stories that they must contain. I do believe the walls around us carry a lot of the information that will determine how we feel whilst we go about our business in an area.
Especially in urban settings walls seem to be the background for almost anything we see. We see them without noticing.
They’re just walls after all: Walls that have been sprayed, walls of concrete, aged walls, white walls, suburban walls. Walls with messages, walls with posters. Walls scratched by car bumpers, walls just painted gray. Not painted at all.
I think they do tell us quite a bit about the way we live. And also where and who’s been here before us.
