At every stage during the creation of sculptures, you are confronted with its nature: the art of inertia. In an art practice driven by velocity and speed, the development and realisation of one piece can take months even years, creating in itself a contradiction. The creation of these paintings, derived from my sculptures break through the slow-paced process and breathes life into the entire art practice.
They are referred to as'paintings', but it are in its nature hybrid works derived from the core-business: sculptures. During the process of creation, photographs of the sculptures are digitally processed and redrawn. When printed on photographic paper these are again modified with paint on top. Crude aluminium plates become with the help of their brutal industrial character, a relevant carrier. Existing sculptures form the basis for something new that's disconnected from the actual sculpture yet has a different meaning and can't exist without its sculptural roots.
