Statement

Return to Eden:
In the Return to Eden paintings we see a display of buildings and interiors combined with nature. The architecture represent man-made, linear structures.
The plants represent the abundance, the innocence and the organic world. In this Urban Jungle we see modernist houses in a paradise-plant-world.
I have a love for colors, patterns and textures. The juxtaposition of all of these contrasting elements create surprising and unique paintings.

Urban Nature:
The Urban Nature paintings are inspired by the still life works of Matisse.
The plants represent the abundance, the innocence and the organic world. The architecture represent man-made, linear structures.
We see a cultivated plant, but at the same time it is overgrowing the maquette sized architecture. Nature and architecture are playing a game of power.
Do the maquettes and geometrical patterns follow the laws of nature or is it the other way around? Does the plant take shape of the linear structures?
