A painting must be judged by what we see and feel. Sometimes this process takes place in a second, sometimes we need more time to experience and to enjoy it. My paintings are figurative. It took a long time to develop my own style which is not intentionally following a trend but is rather formed and recognized by my personality and life experience. A painting is not only an expression of the artist but also a way to enable others to taste the atmosphere and energy of a painting.
Biography: For many years I am producing a variety of paintings. Portraits and still lifes form the main part of my portfolio. Flowers and ballet are examples which I paint in a typical and recognisable stroke. This stroke is often very strong. To keep this strength and power in his paintings I prefer to use acryl based paint. In general I choose a central theme, subject or person, this selection is emphasized by the background which only serves to complete the painting. In the paintings this gives a surprising approach of the object. I find inspiration in Monet, Manet, Degas and Van Gogh. I am working in Delft (Holland) where I have my own studio. Delft is the city of Vermeer and still, after several centuries, harbours many artists. Delft is also a college town which keeps the city lively and modern.
