Still Life was my first relationship with oilpainting. I like to focus very closely to object, to listen to their whispers. In the long process of transparent oil layers on layers, you get to know them deeper and deeper. I look for the intim character of a vegetable, the relationship between them and me. An artichoke or a roll of toilet paper have as much to express as a portrait, you just have to take your time and to listen to it.
