About | Statements and Writings

"Each new series is a new beginning. Of course you don't start at point zero every time but build on previous experiences."

"The first pictures humans made were pictures of the unknown, of the sub-conscience, drawn from an altered state of mind, not representations of the natural environment."

"It is a constant challenge to stay in control of your pictures."

"There are certain elements in my work that have been growing for many years and have (almost) become iconic. They are very hard to resist and with every new body of work they seem to force themselves onto the surface again. It is very hard to work against that urge. To place something familiar even when you know that this is what is holding you back is comforting."
