My paintings are closely related to my papercraft art. For a number of paintings, my paper bird models (see papercraft) served as a source of inspiration. In these still lifes I played with the concepts of spatiality and flatness present in these cardboard models. The paper birds are shown in their various states of development, as well as disintegration. Paper models were also used to make my paintings of the 'waterworlds' and the interiors with robots. I study the lights and shadows of these models, to create a surreal but lifelike world in the paintings. Many of the paintings are of a small size.
