I work with paintings that lie between simple abstract shapes and figuration, architecture and object. The paintings consist of simple forms that together create the illusion of an object. The objects are a fusion of machines and buidings with an undefined function.

I work from small sketches in acrylics and sometimes models up to the actual paintings in which the  structures have drawn closer to the architectual. I am interested in structures, physical and social, the possibilty to act independently and make free choices surrounded by architecture, norms and expectations. I want my work to create feelings of both comfort and security and at the same time of surveillance, judgement and discipline.
