"For the last many months I have been working on 15 new great works. The series is called "What You See Is Not What I See" and springs from some emotions inside me that I have seriously tried to process over the last year."
"It's pretty vulnerable for me to share, not only does it spring from emotions inside me, it springs in all my designs; furniture as well as art but because the subject is complex, full of grief, frustration and at the same time also a sense of redemption. It's about the relationship with my mother, which for the last couple of years has been quite intense and hard. I have not seen my mother for a year and a half now because the way we are in each other's lives right now is causing me more pain than joy. With these works; I have a desire to get people to talk about what is difficult, maybe some can relate, maybe someone knows someone who can relate and I hope that it is something that you can talk more openly and vulnerable about. I have tried to express the emotions that have filled me with a lot of grief, frustration, transgressed boundaries, longing but also a kind of hope that one day things will be different.
The motifs in the paintings spring from these emotions and the main theme is the abstract eyes; which symbolize a distortion and are an expression that the eyes, in this case, see different things. The intuition in the motifs characteristics in all these paintings; it is my pure intuition that is transformed into abstract motifs. The colors are carefully selected in the form of contrasts. Some colors symbolize darkness, frustration and longing, while others symbolize a form of hope and redemption."
