Although I have been fascinated for years by fleetingness, temporariness and the beauty of decay, I would like to keep the work open for the viewer. It is important that the work evokes an ambiance by which the viewer sees different layers: layers in the work, the space but mainly in himself. How he loses himself in the ambience, the silence and how he searches for meaning. Meaning that is open, open in image, open in interpretation and also the search for the meaning of the deliberately empty space. The emptiness in the work and in the space truly are particularly meaningful.
