Selection - Maurits Naessens Prijs (2008) Meise
Honourable mention - Broeder Max Prijs (2006) TessenderloStatement
Nostalgic memories of childlike anxieties, creepy dreams and "unearthly creatures" still fascinate me in a fairly taunting but magnetic way.
As a result, this often translates itself into using painting to relate to somewhat childish fantasy stories/beings (sometimes linked to current or past media-events) and a mixture between "good & evil", all implemented with a nod to the macabre.
The use of different graphical objects and paint textures fascinate me as well as the use of soulful old material.
