This series is illuminating the relationship between identity, space, and meaning. I’am pursuing aesthetic concepts from past centuries in which meaningfulness was intended to be expressed by means of overlapping layers. For the viewer, however, this implies that they should follow the messages concealed behind the mysterious figural compositions. Persons are mostly seen from behind or covered with masks; they turn away so that they might be able to preserve themselves and uses masks or capes in order to protect their inner being, their own self. Some of the Tableaux have a direct reference to historical persons, fictional characters, destinies, others are based on my athentic eperiences.
