Question 10: Are there recurring themes or subjects in your art?

Transcription


A work of art for me is a form of expression. The subject that seems to constantly come up is the difficult time we have with expressing things and the responsibility of being understood. This is an internal discussion that I have with the piece : Is it my place to put in everything so that the other person looking at my work will understand? At what point does the viewer start to be responsible for understanding what I’m trying to say? So that’s a kind of interrogation that I’ve carried around for a long time. And even when I go to other subjects, it seems that it always slips in, like a leitmotiv, I can’t seem to get rid of it. So the difficulty of expressing things underlies pretty much everything I do.
