About "Longing 11"
At the depths of our being is an incessant search for something more, a seemingly insatiable emptiness and longing. Everyone has a longing for something. A longing to be seen, a longing to be happy, to be loved...
I worked as an art teacher at Optima School for the blind. This experience influenced my work greatly. I had to explain art and colour to those who cant see through textures. I started to experiment with texture in my own work to make it interesting to look at and to touch, and to provoke a certain feeling through each painting. Thus every painting can have its own significant meaning to each individual. Flight, escapism, the conscience and life itself are some of the topics I love to work with.
