Layer by Layer

Painting series 2015 – 16

In this series of works, my interest is in surrealistic themes combined with a layered way of painting. Overlaying translucent thin layers of paint is a very traditional way to do oil painting. I approached surrealism as a tool in the search for painting subjects. I made sketches in the mornings as soon as I woke up from the first pictures that came to mind.
