ABOUT

On Painting

'Painting allows me to construct a space where limitation and taboo become abolished. I seem to have a strong interest in the human body as an animal, the body as an object or even as a broad landscape. The outside becomes the inside. Mesmerized by the gaze, I stare at the painting and I must ascertain that it violently stares back at me. My perception becomes indistinct while I feel my way into the next brush stroke.'
