My art is based on an alternative fictional reality where there is an answer to the most basic human. Where there is a deeper universal truth to reach only if one strives hard enough. The starting point is in the narrative. To explore our sociopolitical contemporaries, class perspectives and interpersonal relationships through a layer of fiction. I use both the mythology of the past but also by finding new entrances through science fiction and future depictions. To reach this reality, I need to create it. I do this through a process of building up scenographies and staging events around issues of the interior experiences in contrast to the external. My scenes are then deepened by being transferred and translated into paintings. I see painting as a language, a direction and as an active act to shape our perception of reality. By letting painting meet a fabricated narrative, I can create a new formulation in the story, and if not approach a truth, at least process the longing for it.
