A Story that repeats, 121x92 cm, oil and acrylic on canvas, 2022
Surrealism together with magic realism form a substantial part of my sources of inspiration. Earlier in my life I was completely taken by the radical, abstract surrealist Joan Miro. More recently I found Leonora Carrington. Her understanding of a multi-layered world where the events "happen" together strikes the core of my artistic practice.
I paint and draw, sometimes with scissors. Often painted figurative cut-outs replace the restricted picture-on-the wall format.I am interested in mythology and how stories from the past relate to our contemporary life.
