Painting for me has a definition, a radical definition. It invents another world, a reality, a place. This place does not have to work in the real world. My interests are history, old photographs, philosophy. I create my world around these ineterests. There are emotions and moods that are related to a certain era, that then can remind people of historical events, but all and all it is only functioning in a parallel reality where there are no conclusions that apply to the real world, nor moral nor political messages.
