Where evolution and science keep evolving, human kind is in danger of losing sight of important values. The thought behind this being: Human kind will destroy itself and the belief in it’s own truth. That is what gets him thinking and through self-reflection, to create his paintings.
Assuming the community is becoming evermore hectic and shallow, he tries to offer the viewer a counterweight with his paintings. He tries to stimulate contemplation of the mystery of life, in the hope of creating a dialogue. He uses his fascination for ancient cultures, symbols and signs from the past together with the female figure, eyes and achievements of the present to create his drawings and paintings. He is constantly in search of the optimal exposure for his emotions, the underlying aspect in his work.
