I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:
Change.org
Color of Change
We Can't Breathe
NAACP

Submission Painting

Think of me only when you dance

A mix of woodcut and painting, these works are created intuitively in a dynamic process. The results are woodcuts that are abstract, graphic and figurative at the same time, interspersed with quotes and text fragments.
At first glance they seem to account for the assumed lightness of the impulsive process. Their stories unfold when taking a close look, when following the numberless cuts into wood – in some works amounting to thousands – and when putting the text fragments into context with current events.
There is an underlying political and social discomfort in them, like in most of my work. As an artist I take responsibility and comment through my craft. The depth of the content however isn’t pushed to the front, but develops more like a good song, by engaging into melody and rhythm, harmony and disharmony, lyrics and voice.
