Artist Statement

What is the semi-conscious in both humans and screensavers? That juicy space where both nothing and everything seems to happen. Total rest yet complete catch up for a subjective-objective-contemplative.

In Sanskrit it maybe called yoga nidra and in Dutch this concept is something like niksen

What is atmosphere and the translations of hot, cold, wet, and dry within this? I look for these spaces in my paintings and music.


What is the dreamy and ghost-like world between the physical and the digital and what happens between these spaces?


Currently working on a philosophy manuscript on the ethics of spirituality and technology with a working title of Breath, Space, and Time.

Music Practice

I have a dedicated improvisational acoustic piano and keyboard practice that explores musical modes via color sensibilities and other entry points. My painting and music practice are very closely related and influence each other. Most specifically through exploration of (modal / palette) tonality and rhythm.
