France, 1978, videographer, filmmaker and visual artist living and working in Amsterdam.
Cum Laude graduate from the Academy of Monumental Arts - Maastricht – The Netherlands - 1998/2004
My paintings portray the emotions of a generation having trouble finding a tangible form of hope. A generation that is losing grip on its future despite its wealth and historical lack of physical misery. A generation desperately trying to redefine its social, moral and intellectual values in times of high-speed internet, lingering economic disaster and environmental armageddon.
The question I ask myself: 'How long will the status quo last? And what will we do to overcome the existential crises we face?'
My work as a cameraman and documentary filmmaker keeps me plugged into the veins of our global society. Stories like the ones filmed during the Ebola crisis in Liberia, the Israel/Palestina conflict and refugee trafficking in Lybia, for example, have had a significant impact on how I perceive and make art.
Rather than to reflect on worldly topics from my studio, I have had the chance to meet presidents, beggars, soldiers and whores in person. The insights gained when shaking those peoples hands are reflected and examined in my work to see if I can capture their underlying humanity as well as the philosophical questions hidden behind the endeavours they face.
