Artist Statement

-When Ghosts appear to us, they mainly do so in the form of transparent versions of the deceased person. Paradoxically, we can look through them but we never get to see their insides, their intestines. The characters that are on parade in these drawings appear equally frontal and transparent. Their portraits appear to us in a clear moment, like spectres, merging with their initial design.

The compulsive, reoccurring shape of the sphere in the drawings is often and too easily interpreted as organs, molecules, testicles or planets, but with distinction, the most satisfying title for a composition of many spheres should be ‘Caviar’.
