I’m a multimedia artist but also a multi-art artist & designer, I love to do it all, I recognize myself in the old renaissance artists like Leonardo daVinci and Michelangelo. I paint, sculp, design, make music, invent, perform, make installations, light-art and video-art.
With every medium I use, I channel different parts of myself.
For the last 10 years my main focus has been on light-art, installation-art and on video-art.
The images for my video-installations emerge from my subconscious. They are surrealistic dreamscapes in which I play with gender, sexuality, stereotypes, subcultures & taboos. Inspired by the cinemascope films from my childhood, I create large horizontal canvasses which I fill with strange people, animals, bizarre vehicles and mythical creatures. Every canvas can be viewed as a digital Tableaux Vivant. Every now and then I merge some of these digital canvasses together to create a short non-narrative film. Because these short films have no clear story, viewers are stimulated to create their own story for the films.
My monumental light-art installations emerge from my conscious mind. They embody my concerns about the world of today. Because they are mostly temporary works that can be seen during a festival they are very suitable for addressing the problems of our modern society with topics as Global Warming, Fake News, Social Media etc. At the same time they are also very beautiful crafted works, that also can be enjoyed from an esthetic perspective.
The similarity between all these different projects is that they are all ment to initiate a dialogue with their audience, no art for art sake, but art & design that challenges, provokes, entertains, unites, and stands in the middle of society.
