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.
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?
