In my more recent contemporary work I build up my background layer by layer with a pallet knife. Adding different colors and glazes at different stages make my background translucent, textured and more dynamic. I use open spaces, stylized perspectives and colors to create emotions, knowing that these differ depending on the viewer's own stay of mind and experiences. By using silhouettes, I leave the interpretation open and hope the viewer makes a personal and emotional connection.
