Via false begins, backtracking and digression, a picture takes form. As a rule the result’s a grey and soiled monotony, shattered by sudden moments of readability when sharp mild breaks by means of or a darkish cloud gathers within the distance—setting the figures aside.
The motifs are lifted from a variety of sources. Renaissance portray, Christian mythology, French Realism, new German cinema and newbie pornography; it’s all in there. However the place the motives come from isn’t as attention-grabbing as the way in which they behave when confronted with each other on the image airplane. A myriad of beings cross paths in these work. Some play energetic roles whereas others stand again in passivity. Right here, languid daydreaming, spiritual ecstasy, and carnal want intermingle.
The artist will not be aiming for a unified entire or a state of equilibrium, however appears to be like for ruptures and pitfalls. This allegedly crude and careless perspective must be seen as the alternative; it’s an try to stick with doubt and uncertainty, and depart house for the inaccurate and inconceivable.
