Landscapes

The romantic landscape or "passage ideal" has always been a symbol for man´s jearning for freedom. I like to paint a landscape in such a way as to evoke in the beholder the feeling that he can walk into it. Some of the elements of the landscapes have symbolic meanings, which tell stories, often of a transcendental nature. A tree can symbolize life, water often means purification, whereas a mountain alludes to the Divine. For me a landscape is, as it was for Casper David Friedrich, Arnold Böcklin and Andrew Wyeth, a sacred space, a ladder to the heavens.
