Dancing Faun ( 1st century CE), a lustful woodland creature, follower of Dyonisos, the god of wine, lived freely in wild inebration. Often represented in frenzied states of music making and dance, as here, with chiseled body captured in rotating movement. Dancing with excited fishes with a Greek-Persian style mosaic background

What happens when you take Greek mythological statues and torsos from their safe environment and give them a surreal twist. Illuminated or surrounded by unusual creatures, their sensual appeal is enhanced in a colorful image. Ancient statues were often much more colorful than people now think....let's give some colour back..

PARADISO

Distant travels and exciting encounters. It used to be natural to discover the world and meet people. A global pandemic, international energy crisis and a changing mindset how we deal with the world and the climate are slowly changing our lives. Is it still okay to fly everywhere? But what does that do to our memories? Can we still remember what we went through, or who we met? Or is that gradually becoming a worn-out thought... a slowly fading memory...?
Paradiso shows beach life on Naxos as it once was for me....slowly fading away....like a blur in a snapshot 

Oil on canvas, number three has recently been added and maybe more to come...anyway the background of these three continues like an endless horizon, when put next to each other

My

DECAY

Dandys, impeccable and androgynous. As a basis, four old lists found inspired me to a series of portraits that radiate transience. Torn placards, hidden texts and faded beauty executed in oil on board and as a finishing touch a thick glossy epoxy layer.

DECAY
A story of contradictions, of decay and renewal, of beauty and old age. Four frames, discarded and damaged. For years they were a showpiece in the interior of an authentic brown pub, they were demolished and left behind in a second-hand stuff shed. I came across them and couldn't leave them behind. As I was already collecting photos of walls full of pasted posters as inspiration for colors and backgrounds, I came up with the idea for a series about old and new, decay and beauty. The frames have been refurbished, but the age remains visible. Texts are visible but illegible, all painted on a background of randomly torn painted pamphlets. Like a phoenix from the flames, four beautiful men, impeccable Dandy's, emerge, seemingly unfazed by the ravages of time. Even the paisley motif on the back of the paintings is a reference to the times of old. To enhance the effect, the paintings are finished with a thick layer of  resin, so as to seal the decay of the background and the beauty of the nineteenth-century men against the ravages of time.
The image I have tried to create is to depict the ease with which nowadays it is easy to part with what is damaged or dilapidated, without thinking about what was once beautiful and had value. Restore that value and give it new allure, and honor its DECAY.
