The darkness surrounds the paintings as much as the light, but it is the light that lets you enter further. When painting, I feel as though I’m trying to get through slabs of concrete, yet the challenge is satisfying and it keeps me going.

That’s probably why there’s this heavy resting moment in each piece of work. The image is tinged with melancholia, although not without a feeling of resolution.

It seems as though when working, I always look at the image as if it were something in the    past, something  you know only partly of, but I think that the paintings come out with a sense of future as well. The sketches are of a being called an opperatant who is learning about the end of one’s life and the beginning of another.
