I will paint on the walls and install my existing paintings in the room as a whole installation of my previous year and my idea of “perk_up!“
Do you think there is a problem of depression or something you see lacks cheerfulness that needs to be addressed?
I am just about to accept that I do not have a style to follow. I was always interested in creating all kinds of stuff but especially in painting there are so many possibilities you find out while experimenting. I want the chance to start over and over again in every new painting I do. So I had my struggles finding my authentic me. And this show gives me the opportunity to get on.
For some of us who can’t make it to your show. Give us a picture of your exhibition. What do you associate it with?
I would associate my exhibition with an explosion of images I am surrounded by. Including games, illusion, comic, random internet, street art and so on.
Is there a specific piece that you are extremely excited to show to people? Why?
A lot happened last year. And it’s my first solo show in Vienna. So, there are a couple of paintings that I am excited to show and see the reactions of people. Last year, I was living in the Netherlands. It was the first time for me to live somewhere else alone so I had time to focus on painting and think about what my interests are. But as I mentioned it is also about the arrangement of all the paintings in the Room that I am interested in, so I think, you will definitely have to come and see it in in-person. 😉
What should we expect different from this show that you haven’t done before?
