During my residency at Bethanien in Berlin in the autumn 2018 I created a series of abstract paintings. In all my paintings I am concerned with the tension between the abstract and the figurative, why it was very interesting to push the paintings further to the abstract quality, as I often seem to push the paintings to the figurative. However, I always seek to combine both in the same painting.

Please see a selection of the paintings below.
