Education from “planted” series
Planted My most developed series is called “Planted”. The common denominator of this body of work is the starting point of my choice to reuse old paintings - portraits, landscape and still-lifes, works that I have done in the past. Around these existing paintings I tailor a narrative to the ”characters”, a plot that is completely new to the creation of the early painting. The portraits are of real people that I have painted from observation but the whole scene in which I ‘plant’ the portraits is invented, fabricated. The characters are inserted into a story that is not theirs, moving between different possibilities of reality.

Is it suppressed rage or apathie This zone of “in-betweenness” is my playground.
