In this section I would like to trace and demonstrate the development of my painting career. Studies of the traditional European masters with an emphasis on the Renaissance period influenced my first works. Later on the German expressionist movement had a major impact on my painting. Subsequently the modern abstract movement from America changed my style for a short period until I developed my own language.
The freedom to invent new pictorial realities, - whilst at the same time commenting on the human condition, - is a time-honoured practice by painters of many generations from Bosch to Max Ernst and onwards. For me this process envolves encounters with ecstatic planes of expression and releases me from orthodox norms.
