My pictures show both symbolist and surreal tendencies. The symbolist pictures represent problems of our existence such as proximity and distance in human relations, love, longing, isolation and aggression, among other things. Just as in mime and modern dance, the subjects express an idea or a mood through gestures and movement. This gives a symbolic character to parts of the picture. My landscape pictures can also be interpreted metaphorically, as expressions of mental moods.

The surrealist work developed by chance from the structure of a picture (as for instance the Surrealists did through  decalcomania  - a method which was used for example by  Max Ernst  already in the 20s). The encoded meaning of the picture can reflect mental experiences. These seem like messages from the personal or collective subconscious. Sometimes this makes the pictures ambiguous. Their interpretation depends on the associations of the observer. The title of the picture may provide an added stimulus.

My painting techniques (usually oil on canvas) are mostly based on the late-medieval  layer painting, which among other things has been developed from the innovative approaches towards the handling and manipulating of oil paint by  Jan van Eyck. There several transparent oil layers are painted one above the other, so that the often unusual colours of my pictures develop a special depth and luminosity.
