Itīs not that easy to tell about the bases of my recent work. Not just because the objects appearing in the subject matter in my works are increasingly shifting outside our actual, immediately discernible everyday world of experience, but also because human knowledge is still currently not even fully capable of understanding the character, limits or function of these complex areas.

For example, my works deal with systems found in natural science. Systems whose structures have, in one way or another, been created through some kind of self organisation. What is so fascinating about these complex systems is that their inner character is also inevitably depicted in their external structure. Itīs as if the system structure forms a map of its own function.

My paintings are a kind of study made through artistic means. The motifs are either based directly on elements in the natural environment surrounding us or in the structures of abstract information diagrams used by the scientific disciplines investigating these elements.
