NL:
Mijn werk is gebaseerd op wat ik zie: de lulligheid van het bestaan. Mensen (inclusief ikzelf) proberen er steeds maar weer wat van te maken. De ononderbroken inzet om, buiten je eerste levensbehoeften om, iets leuks van het leven te maken vind ik mooi. Vaak zijn de pogingen onbeholpen, en roei je maar wat tegen de stroming in, maar soms zijn ze ook enorm ingewikkeld en imposant. Soms zijn ze een combinatie van die twee.

EN:
My work is based on what I see; the silliness of our existence. People (including myself) keep trying to make something nice of it all. This unrelenting effort to make life into something nice, to go beyond the bare necessities, is what I like. Often the attempts are slaphappy, awkward and against our better judgement. But sometimes they end up awesome and intricate. Sometimes they are a combination.
