How do you choose the color compositions?
I paint with my hands. I don’t use brushes or spatulas. It’s more like a dance or a performance and the outcome always depend on the mood I’m in. The color combinations I create with are typically colors I would not normally pair together. Very spontaneous things happen which I don’t plan beforehand.
Are there certain moods in which you paint?
I need to have time. I spread my supplies out and sometimes do a night shift. I’m more productive when it’s dark.
Do you then listen to music?
When I start painting, I mentally block out. I play my favorite bands on Spotify that I know I can listen to for hours without ever having to switch.
The word ‚abstract‘ has no clear meaning. Is there a term that you find more suitable for your artwork?
I would use the term intuitive art : compositional, free of figures, not a tangible image. That makes it more relaxed to look at because you don’t have any formed information. You can create more emotions.
Do you know how many art pieces you have created so far?
When I first started, in my teenage years, I always gave all my pieces away or started anew. The way I looked at my pictures changed often. In the last few years, I’ve made five large-format plexiglass works and easily a hundred smaller works. They are mostly living with friends and in relative’s apartments.
Is there anything else that you would like to try out? Maybe working in other materials?
These materials are something that have been with me for a long time, which have started to level off. I’ve been making more sculptural things in the last year, and album cover concepts. But the materials I use for those are mostly similar to my paintings! I could imagine making more spatial or object-heavy things. I also find that exciting.
