Precious Moments

The pressure is on. Time is flying and the people are hasty. Still, I can't stop trying to catch the moment. Nothing intrigues me more than facial expressions. Reactions, contemplative or impulsive, moments of joy.. they usually slip through our fingers. We might take a quick photo. But as a painters, we can capture more then a moment. I'm interested in pure, spontanuous and characteristic action. It can be a typical behaviour, someone reflecting, or the face of this child refugee, unable to even cry anymore. I just want to capture the moment that captures the soul.

Multi mediatic

The mediums I work with differ, depending on the subject; it could be acrylic paint, graffiti sprays, watercolour, wax, paper, cement, glue, collage, monoprint; there are no boundaries. So, for a portrait I just need the photo's you send me!
