“In my eyes, realism becomes abstract if you look at it closely enough. In nature when the sun hits water or shines through trees, the real thing seems suddenly quite abstract. It is like looking at myriad of colours made out of rectangles, circles, rounds, triangles, dots and squares. I wanted to see the same thing happen in my painting by involving those shapes in my work. I try to create realism seen through a kaleidoscopic view, where the line between reality and abstraction changes with the blink of an eye.”
