New Work

A new series of process-focused paintings and sculptures that start in the abstract and end quite realistic. Paintings started in the abstract (drawn away) and were drawn back to the figurative.

Phase after I saw the bird and whitened
some of the blue to make the
bird shape more distinct

When I started painting like this it was scary, because I have no control over the outcome, the theme.And still when I face a canvas with random paint applied, it typically looks chaotic and often completely ugly and it looks hopeless and like a impossible challenge to reconcile.

I work like an autistic person, I divide a big task in many small enough pieces that are manageable and imaginable and go from one section to the next. If I can't see the "forest" I look for "one tree" first.

During the process where I had found leaves,
some flowers and the shape of a portrait which I
made more obvious with blue in the back.

Announcing God's Gift to Us

Announcing God's gift to us (according to Luke 2:10-11)

"And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." (KJV)
