Place paintings (2018-)

Painting place; or more specifically, painting manmade structures in a landscape, is where it all began for me.  The idea of a building being erected in a place, existing there, belonging there, having purpose there, and eventually decaying there – or more abruptly, being demolished – seemed like a metaphor to me for our own questions about life, existence and belonging. 

After a long hiatus  in which I have been exploring the inner landscape through more abstract means, I have started painting place again: for how long, how frequently it will happen, I cannot tell.
