For me life is a big "Stage" that I look at. In my paintings I react as a painter by bending the different scenarios I see to my liking. I use the roles and props of the past and present to give them a different context and a new meaning. Sometimes it feels like I literally have to clean up my repertoire of props. Then I paint a cabinet containing the objects and memories that occupy me at that moment. Such a painting can be created to end a working period or to step out of an ongoing process. I organize my thoughts and repertoire that way. For the Herbarium project I created such a cabinet within the box.
