Drawing on the physical properties of painting as (trans)portable and on theoretical notions of the nomadic and dialogic, my practice focuses on mobility and interaction both literally and metaphorically. This refers to the real (geographical) relocations of the artist, the artefact and the exchange of ideas but also to the flow of imagined geographies within the ‘flatmap’ surface of painting.

My practice explores painting as relational and the potential to become an invitation for interaction. It attempts to capture and represent painting not as a fixed statement of a single voice (the artist’s) but an ongoing process of response. The paintings and drawings embody visual notations with reference to maps, networks and rhizomatic structures, that are constantly changing towards new manifestations referring to a plan-view that is constantly remapped.

Framed by the extensive mobility of our times, I move between nations, locations, cultures and ideas, experiencing a world beyond cultural borders. I address the artist and art object as a kind of ‘transmitter’ moving between real and imaginary geographies.
