Jumping series | untitled 2018 egg-tempera on linen 66 x 33 cm
My work is mainly based on photographs. I begin by selecting a suitable photograph, for which I draw on the archive I have built up through observation. Photos I make myself and find on the internet. I select the photo according to atmosphere, composition or pose. Photos and their stories are one point of departure for my work. Sometimes a photo is waiting in my archive for many years to be selected. An archived photo, which I took years ago on my travel through Tanzania, triggered me to make this painting years later.
