If figuration and abstraction are to be seen as the two poles of contemporary painting, my works are located in an interspace, moving in a way of transition between them. Connecting these poles widens the possibilities painting offers for me. I am dealing with purely picturesque – creative questions for composition, colour, shape etc., as well as with the scope of painting as an instrument for narration and content and thereby to deal with social issues, in particular with the relation between mankind and nature.
