“For 25 years now I have chosen to express myself on copper plates with colored varnishes and other materials. Copper’s warmth in combination with the transparency of the varnishes gives an incomparable radiance. The characters in the paintings are stylized and emphasized in an abstract space. This composition gives to the whole, a different look which brings you in a timeless space. The goal of these works is to let the gaze go into timeless space.”
