Many of my pictures smell of travel or wanderlust. My actual trips take place in the studio, this is the scene of the crime.
Since my student days I have been working with egg tempera paints that I make myself. In contrast to factory-made tube goods, I can control the consistency of the colors myself. I use wooden panels as painting surfaces. I particularly appreciate the dull and brittle color surfaces of the egg tempera, which are reminiscent of frescoes and the painterly ancestors in spirit.
