About my work

My DREAMSCAPES are formed by the visual information that is fired at us every day, dreams and thoughts. I create these DREAM(E)SCAPES in my ‘visual diary’, on large paper or on canvas using mixed media: collage technique, by painting and drawing with pastel chalk. Textures, structures and layers are created, it is an organic process.

The landscapes grow through layers of images, shapes and structures from the visual material that I encounter through various media. I use photos of film and TV stills, images and texts from magazines and newspapers, but also plastic waste and organic material that I find. As a visually oriented person, I am both stimulated and overwhelmed by visual pollution and I feel the need to process, transform and translate this bulk of image information and materials that I find into a virtual landscape. As if in a vicious circle in nature, I imagine all this image information to be leaves that wirl down, disintegrate on the earth, mix with the soil and become compost from which new life grows.

WONDERLAND

In the past (human) figures played the leading role, but more and more collages took the form of landscapes, became more abstract and figures disappeared into the background, merge into larger forms and forms merge with each other.

It is a personal, logical and natural process. An exploration of experimenting with forms, materials and techniques, in which the shaping and the story that I want to tell reinforce each other.
