I take my subjects from a wide rage of sources; from pornography, landscapes and portraits of friends and musical collaborators. I describe a creative and complex world that bridges artistic and musical creativity. As a member of the celebrated band 'FAUST', I incorporate painting into my on-stage performances and often documents my experimental performances in my paintings. My small enamel paintings have all of the fascination of historical cabinet miniatures; small, intimate, often sexual imagery is rendered in jewel-like colours on tiny metal panels.
My fascination with life and the personal landscapes I encounter comes from the margins of society, my works describes the edge of or a bridge between obsessive worlds and the day to day.
