“I paint people. My works show people at a grocery store, at home, at work, at a hospital and on the street. The way I work is through improvisation on the canvas. It is like a stream of consciousness that allows me to deal with a life-based situation honestly. Even though my paintings come from my head and I don’t have a model or image, my works are not fantasy. Often a simplified situation or reference keeps the themes connected to reality.

The people in my paintings do not hide or turn their backs. Instead, they often look at the viewer without covering up. Afterwards I may notice that the themes are actually situations that I have experienced or seen myself.

I began depicting everyday situations when I was a student at the Free Art School in 2005 and I made pieces entitled 6:25 am, dishwashing and Do you have a bonus card?. I am not a theorist and I am not able to assess my pictures. However, I strongly believe that honest physical painting allows one to show something directly that cannot be shown using other methods. My work continues.”

The opening of the exhibition is on Thursday 26th February at 6 pm. Welcome!

Meet the artist on Sunday 8th March at 12 pm.
