The quest for moments, for air and light in their great dance.
What else is there?
These moods and triumphs of nature, the elements, are the greatest show on earth.
My work is an endless search for these special moments.
Sometimes I manage to catch them before they slip away,
sometimes they remain just a memory…
And tomorrow there will always be new ones,
seemingly more beautiful than the ones before
- but they never are, they are just different, fresh, and equally inspiring…
Influenced to some extent by James McNeill Whistler, Gustave Courbet and others,
I am a painter of nature with a special focus on the interplay of air and light…
My work is realist, and reflects the feelings evoked by the elements in their tranquility, their transitions and in their rage.
I try to be spontaneous and free, so as to capture the mood and atmosphere,
before the light becomes too dominant, or the interval, before the relative strength or weakness of one or more of the elements reduces the composition.
Nature gives us so much more to see, if we look for it, and there is no greater privilege than to be there, to feel the air on one’s face… and I really hope you feel it as I do too…
