There are several themes that have surfaced in my art. I've been consistently painting in the trompe l’oeil style surreally creating optical illusions. Painting the frames is the result of an unfortunate collision with an ugly specimen. I paint objects with real shadows: this time an insect, another time water drops… I feel successful when my viewer is confused. I especially like it when birds and insects are fooled and mistake my painting for the real thing.
The one theme I return to again and again is the changing environment. A forest scene is cut in two with an axe, and a mannequin is walking on string stretched between two alps that soon won’t be covered in snow any more. Water drips out of the painting of a waterfall cascading over the frame – we waste so much water. My paintings are far from conventional landscapes.
