In my most recent body of work, I delve into the dynamic relationship between individuals and their surroundings. Through my art, I portray characters navigating a world in flux and the remnants they leave behind. Themes of introspection, alienation, loneliness and distance are leading in my work.
When plein-air painting, I find myself drawn to urban non-spaces such as alleys, garages, and viaducts. The inherent anonymity and frequent presence of these locations in our daily lives intrigue me. By painting on-site and utilising smaller canvases, I strive to capture a more personal and intimate interpretation of these places. Occasionally, these plein-air pieces serve as inspiration for larger studio paintings.
My work is a synthesis of personal photographs, painting on location, and images found on the internet.
