Expect Nothing, Appreciate Everything

With the series Expect Nothing, Appreciate Everything, I continued questioning contradictions that I experience and what most people take for granted. In this case the disproportionate placement of the colours in the Google logo was the trigger. From there on, it led me to the company’s global categorization and the disappearance of spontaneity. In relation to my own conflicted obsessive perfectionism, I translated this into new abstract self-portraits in which an interaction unfolds between straight and spontaneous lines. In search for that sublime experience of the in-between, the spontaneous lines alternate with the straight. The colours go up against the white paint, while the pattern is constantly in conflict with its breakthrough. To take the viewer into that moment of in-between, I also created sound and video works to complement and oppose the creative process.
