    Artist statement: Driving my work is the need to react to the urban landscape and to reduce this to the basics of materiality, form, and pure painterly constructions. The main focus of my art practice is the creation, selection, and presentation of a visual language as paintings and installation art. Throughout this process I return to the question: What does it mean to act in and through painting on the urban landscape and what kinds of forms of action do painting suggest?
