'This world' is a phantasmagorical place I depict. My works are windows and portals between our world and this one.
The scenes that I capture from this parallel world are not always clear, but they are often helpful to me to understand the real world or to be more self-conscious about my feelings, my desires and my surroundings.
I want you, at first sight, to be attracted by it, you'll ask yourself what do you like about it, you're going to want to know about it and then, I hope, learn about yourself.
I am aiming for beauty, that everybody can enjoy regardless of their backgrounds.
Here, I feel that sometimes people drop their armour, they let themselves be more vulnerable for a moment, contemplating this alternative world.
Black Humor and Monstrosity
My thesis is about black humour and monstrosity in art, how it had been depicted, for which purpose and what it brings us. I chose that particular subject, because I am sensitive to black humour. I think it often helps to look at something from a different perspective. It was also a way for me to connect with many artists that I have looked to for inspiration through time (Bosch, Dali, Goya, Miyazaki, …)
