i am more of a craftsman than an intellectual.
i am a painter first, artist second.
i am a simple man:
a rather pragmatic, technical type, driven by instinct,
and (most of the time) far less theoretical.
for me this means, in order to grasp something, i need to experience it first-hand.
therefore my artwork has strong autobiographical tendencies ...
my experiences turn to paintings, in which i strive for atmospheric density,
packing my insight into more or less comprehensible narratives ...
at the centre of that effort, i try to reconcile realistic superstructure
with resolute abstract landmarks.
i have a recurring interest in the break, or the crack, that runs through things ...
be it cities, facades, faces, humans or landscapes.
"there is a crack in everything,
that is how the light gets in."
