"As I have already pointed out, my paintings are of Nordic inspiration."
This choice is not restricted to the South, while more cheerful and bright, but so much less mystical and nostalgic!
Of this Northern land, I love the culture, history and legends where the natural world and the supernatural intermingle.
I feel suffused by its calm, mysterious expanses of land, which are for me an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
The painting “Vlaandern” is a tribute to the country where I was born. Through its forms and hues, it conveys the utter closeness that I feel towards this flat country where the eye is free to gaze ever further and where the soul wanders beyond the horizon.
The North is the birthplace of legends and of romanticism. This mysterious world – ever present in people’s minds, even if we are not always aware of it – was given shape at a time when feelings and a sense of honor were raised to the level of the sublime, and when man aspired to searching for the Absolute.
