Upcoming : 5 - 10th June 2021 - Conscience20 Antwerp
I studied at St-Lucas school of art in Antwerp after which I continued my studies in Florence, Italy. There I met, and still work to this day, with the most fabulous teachers I could have wished for. I learned a great deal about different art forms and how they all inform one another. Although I mainly paint, this approach shaped me as a multi-disciplinary artist. I was also engaged in fascinating theoretical studies in Art History and Critical Theory.
In my work I choose to use the medium which I feel puts my message across best. This can be drawing with pencil, ink, charcoal or using text, objects, images, paper and oil paints. Often this work will translate into paintings, but many mediums work depending on what needs to be said.
My work is diverse, however there is an underlying 'red thread' which looks at duality. Finding where those seemingly opposite aspects merge and how they essentially belong to the same 'seed' is my underlying narrative. If both reconcile, a kind of third space opens up, where a different dialogue can give shape to new thinking paradigms.
