My art is Fun and I prefer to call my works ‘pictures’ rather than paintings. My pictures reveal the radical ambiguity of fantasy. The uncanny—the fantastic—the marvellous—the hesitation—the supernatural- the uncertainty is all very important to my work. The Language of my visual texts is where (y)our desire is placed. Mixing various with popular and unpopular historical elements combining them as visual pastiche, I try to synchronize them into an own, unique visual language which I would like called ‘Non western-western art’. I just want to be free. Freedom is of enormous importance to an artist as well as to my [art] work.
