2 paintings from a new series which uses trivial (American) pictorial culture as a source of inspiration.

In the series 'Covers' I use the word cover as a title. It is a word from popular music which means that a song is reproduced and performed by a different band or singer.

In relation to my work it also means reproduction, but not of popular music but of pictures from films and television series.

These pictures, which enter our living rooms and our lives, show us the opportunities we have, how we can and how we want to live.

They show a reality full of clichés, within easy reach, because we are rich and young. We can effortlessly travel the globe.
