POETRY AND THE SUBLIME BEAUTY OF TRANSIENCE

IN MY WORK, 

FLOWERS AND PETALS SEEM TO FLOAT ON THE MATTE BLACK OF A DEMATERIALIZED BACKGROUND.

LIGHT AND WEIGHTLESS LIKE A JELLYFISH IN THE DARK DEPTH OF THE SEA.

THE DRIED PETALS OF THE CHRYSANTHEMUM AND CALLA CLING TO EACH OTHER, LIFE CLINGING TO LIFE.

THIS SERIES SHOWS ITSELF IN THE LIGHT BETWEEN ILLUSIONISM AND NATURALISM. THE MAGIC MAKES THE VIEWER DOUBT REALITY.

A TRIBUTE TO THE FLORAL STILL LIFE OF DUTCH AND FLEMISH RENAISSANCE ARTISTS, A WORLD AWAY FROM THE COMMERCIALISM AND FLORAL CLICHES OF TODAY.
