When I created the Silk Peace Art Road (SPAR) Installation for the 2019 Venice Biennale, I ventured into painting and combining painting with photography.
In early 2020, I added the ten photo and painting Combines as an addition to the SPAR installation and with a view to its – then – planned tour to China and some of the Belt And Road Initiative, BRI, capital cities over 2-3 years.
I’m of course not the first photographer to explore painting – but I have yet to find someone who has done it the way I do it. And lots of painters and other artists have explored photography – think Rauschenberg, Hockney, Richter – and incorporated it into their works.
There are of course differences and distinctions: What is a photography and what is a painting? But I think those borders should be perceived more as streams that mix than as walls.
So, below please find some of my paintings – works in which the photographer has not used photography but only paint and brushes, fingers, spatula, cloth, knives, or whatever. All are painted on plywood.

These paintings will soon be available in The Shop. Until then, send an inquiry about price or questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
