Omschrijving werk

Hot or cold, old or new, high or low, sharp or dull, drunk or sober, conscious or unconscious. The consolidation of the opposing poles; creates relationship, rhythm and context. One cannot exist without the other. In my work, I use lacquer, paint and stretched plastic on a large scale to create an ethereal space onto which images and forms are projected. Together they form a dialogue and a narrative will materialise. These paintings emerge into the space, the interaction between reflection and the reflected. Objects and sculpture accompany the paintings, interacting and creating an atmosphere. The transition of states is visualised. The fool symbolises the beginning of the journey, he knows of nothing but has everything yet to learn. The audience become a part of the dialogue. The work and its meaning cannot exist without the spectator, as the work cannot exist without the artist. The intention of my work is to create an exchange between the conscious and unconscious, myself and my audience. I present the spectator with a path, their journey falls in their hands. For whatever meaning is obtained, whatever dialogue that occurs is unique to every individual. As the narrative materialises between the mediums, so does a narrative arise between the spectators interpretation and experience. I take the role of the spectator, I take the role of the fool.
