About the Artist
I am interested in seducing the viewer. I try to create a visual lure to keep the viewer entertained. Once this has happened I can introduce a character, suggest a story.
I am interested in European Art and how the idea of ecstasy is produced in many styles: sensuality (Lippi), realism (Caravaggio), the macabre (Bosch) and the metaphysical (Dalí).
A left-field flavour, elaborate stage props, powerful imagery that confronts the viewer, that looks you direct in the eye and dares you to look back.
Nothing is sacred, religious under/overtones, the hint of deliciously dark things beyond mere fetish – delicious, modern portraiture.
