1953, IJmuiden, Netherlands. Im an abstract-figurative painter, working in oil and acrylic. Themes: Fragility of man. Artist statement. ‘I LIKE TAKING THE IMAGE TO A BREAKING POINT.’ Temporality and vulnerability are main themes in my work. I choose my medium and topics intuitively. As source material I use images of people. I am particularly interested in their physicality and also how they wear their clothes. I find people in general fascinating because everybody is so different in everything. In my artwork, I try to live in their personality and psyche. The portraits I create bear witness to this. It is not primarily about similarity but about content. Despite that I paint and draw what I see there is a high degree of abstraction. The original image I make own by a process of distortion and blur. The images have a softness and mystery and are becoming more intangible. With the DISTORTED HEADS I break more violent in the image and make them fragmentary and even broken. I do intuitively research into what interests me in image and media. The time I spent on the actual making of an art work is short, speed is for me a condition for making authentic images. The materials I work with, charcoal, graphite, paint, are autonomous, it is clear to me that the form to a certain extent is the content of a work. It is not only at the service of the subject but also leads a life of its own. Sources: art history starting from the 17th century to the present, old photos and everything what draws my attention in publications, newspapers, the internet etcetera. I am inspired at the artists whom I greatly admire: Willem de Kooning, Luc Tuymans, Gerhard Richter, Michael Borremans, Jan Mankes, Adrian Ghenie.
