ARS Arctica - prize 1990

"I am interested in many kinds of techniques, materials and their different cobinations.

Colours, light, space and the movement of the brush are important in making of aquarelles and oil paintings.

Painting is an intense process between the mind and the hand.

Videos, photos and installations enable another way of thinking and technical processing than painting.

It makes me happy to produce what did not exist before - and then, it appears!"
