Artist’s statement -
In Dutch: Citaat:“als je uiteindelijk begrijpt dat wat je ziet niet is wat je denkt, dan kun je er in zien wat je wilt.” In English: “When you finally understand that what you see is not what you think, you can see whatever you want to see .”
Favourite movies -
Vertigo (1958), a film BY Alfred Hitchcock. I love the way he uses the camera as the actor James Stewart is falling down. But on the other hand the movie: 50 First Dates (Peter Segal, 2004) with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore makes me cry every time. Ow my god! Also, Frida Kahlo (2002) a film by Julie Taymor with Salma Hayek.
