The paintings are about color, structure and shape; the work is mostly thematic and in series. Themes are about relativity, time, happiness, Japanese characters, landscapes, still lifes, justitia, music. In addition to free work, I do assignments and projects, such as Japan in words and images, Akzo Art Project 'Splash Art' with Lewis Hamilton, Albert Heijn Bloemendaal 'Beijing', State Printing Company 'Hollandse Haring'.
There are many invisible shapes and colors beneath the surface of the almost white painting. It's about the process: what happens when you paint and remove something, layer by layer, often more than 20 layers of what's left. Acrylic on linen, 120x130cm
The painting 'The lightness of loneliness' is minimalist. It's about being alone and dying without gloom.
'Landscape congealed in bloom': here a moment, an image, is frozen, as we suddenly came to a standstill in a world of Covid-19 in spring.
