I’m one of those artists who really can’t decide whether to prefer a rerun of an obscure SF show or a trip to the old masters gallery; give me an opportunity however to watch slimy B-movie creatures on a backdrop of Bosch and Brueghel and I jump at the occasion. I have always been drawn to crossover art; it’s just too much fun exploring the borderlines of things.
Currently I am exploring the merging points between religious icon art, renaissance painting and comic culture. I am particularly thrilled by the kind of spiritual terror you find expressed in the paintings of the old Flemish masters, and I’m trying to find out what happens when you apply that mood to the serene and harmless world of rural folk art. On top of that I am also rediscovering drawing at the moment.
