SYMBOLIC EVOLUTION collection
This new collection of original paintings aims to explore the evolution of language in today's society from older symbols to shortened words usually used as 'text speak' in instant messaging. I think what is interesting to point out is the fact that these shorthand words in text messages are becoming and to some extent already are a universal language like the symbols and pictorial signs of old. In the context of these contemporary and expressionistic paintings, both symbols and text speak are utilised in a universal way to dive into the the deeper message being portrayed by the paintings. That everything new and old, be it language, images and even music are all connected by our emotions and our perceptions as a species.
SECRET LOVE collection
This new collection of original paintings aims to document my emotions of love and attachment and how we as humans feel when we approach the subject. Some people are shy and hide their feelings, keeping them a secret while others are more inclined to talk about every relationship detail so the world knows their story. After some deep thought on the themes of truth, love and connection, I created this collection with as much passion as one could muster and I hope viewers will feel the emotional connection within my paintings.
BACK TO REALITY COLLECTION
A series of ten paintings exploring my own thoughts and feelings in relation to my own 'reality' as a means to make sense of the choices I make in life like a visual diary. I have started recording words and phrases that are related to how I feel, things I hear, think of or read from all areas of life in my notebooks as they are experienced. I have become a sort of conduit for information that only I 'choose' to be aware of and my feelings are now being recorded and laid bare as part of this painting series. So each painting is a true reflection of my own personal perspective of reality.
