Built with Indexhibit
This is how I started my "jungle" idea. I started with painting in Tempera, then later with oil (which
proved quite tricky as I have never painted with oil before and I didn't understand really how the
paint wants to behave). I wanted to create figurative paintings, I wanted to add a human presence,
I wanted to include sexual but frightening motives, and I initially looked at and sketched real life
plants. I visited a botanical gardens and loved carnivorous plants. However, I slowly realised that I
don't necessarily need or want to depict these in a realistic way, or at least not as a landscape.
