Biography

I have been working as an independent visual artist since 1994. My studio,
Atelier OO7 is located in Zwolle NL.
I have a background in graphic design. Over time I have developed into a multi-disciplinary artist.

A distinctive feature in my work is the human body in al its shapes, forms and behavioral aspects. My art is often a personal reflection of social issues and current affairs, but daily scenes, platitudes and the absurdities of human behaviour also inspire me.

Although my art is highly aesthetical, it also contains distressing elements that evoke a feeling of uneasiness. This contradiction is a recurring theme in my artwork. Do you really see what is shown?

To me, innovation is not a purpose in itself but the result of progressive insight and the need to stretch and push my own boundaries. Lately my art is more ascetic, dynamic with hints of architecture, which could be interpreted as a return to the core of being.

The created images often touch upon the edge of fiction and fact and have a range from graphic to plastic. Therefore my artwork covers several disciplines: paintings, sculptures and processed photographs.
