"About space, depth, surface, character, actors, material, colour,
light. It is all connected, but none of these elements alone can
explain the others.
The paintings can be reminiscent of a theatrical world with
elements and back drops that give the scenes a fictional feel, of 
dream or fantasy. The paintings do not have much to do with 
reality, or our perception of reality, even if they are not abstract.
Animals, people, trees, different kinds of buildings and weather
all exist here. The material world has left its traces, but the sensuality 
in the paintings is merely a reflection with its very specific
colour register.
