Painting to me is relieving and expressing a mood or a feeling from inside, subconscious as well as registrations and interpretations of everyday life – social, emotional and general. I do it on paper, hardboard, canvas, cardboard, in structures, collages, brushstrokes, colors, signs, figures and letters, or whatever it takes to bring about that feeling.
While my painting is abstract and absolute, photography seldom is. It's about searching and capturing a sense, an expression, whether it's in the faces of demonstrating workers in San Cristobal de las Casas, the surface of a rough wall in Reykjavik or a pattern in the streets of Tokyo. Every picture holds a story, often untold, kept by the object, transformed by the photographer and presented to the receiver.

¨A painting should not be a depiction of things but an object in its own right, an object of power, a thing of presence, with an ability to stir and awaken.¨
