While working on this picture I sometimes felt this slight sensation, uncanny desire to dive deep into this lake, rise to the surface and be lost in blue, green and grey. I strived to give the same sensation to a person contemplating it. I believe New Zealand to be the place on Earth where it’s much more easy to feel united with nature, be whole. With my work, I aspire to share and spread this feeling.

Playing with precision planned architectural details of satellite images layered with the unpredictable shapes and shades of the ocean, these port pictures of New Zealand are rather a reflection of the juxtaposition between our man-made and the natural elements that make up our stunning New Zealand coastline.
FROM THE ARTIST
“Seconds from a dream”
There must be a second in time when dreams are meeting the paintbrush and stroke by stroke, pictures come alive in front of our eyes.
I tried to capture this moment using the deepest and lightest shades of the ocean, keeping the pictures between fantasy and reality: where everything is still a bit blurry, just like when you wake up from a dream.
Through the view of a Tui from above – from the shape of the islands, the spectacular skyline of Auckland down to a cute little jellyfish floating in the water – a hazy, elusive collection of paintings created with a mixture of textures and loose layers of watercolour with a touch of black and white ink.
