My ideas often form when I’m awake at night, usually triggered by the question ‘I wonder what would happen if…?' I then work on all the technicalities in my mind, maybe the next night as well, until I can see the whole finished product. I follow these instructions starting with an accurate drawing and letting the colors suggest themselves as I paint, a process which takes ten to twelve hours to complete. I use acrylic, applying several thin layers with surprisingly small brushes. I enjoy the trance-like state this induces. It is not unusual for me to notice something in the environment, over the following weeks, which I recognise as having been the trigger for the idea – such as the side of the new hospital in town or a magnifying glass lying on a table for weeks at home – and its effect on what lay underneath. I have come to regard painting as an indispensable outlet for the inner workings of my subconscious mind.
