My arrival to Los Angeles started up a new developement in my paintings, something that led to a breakthrough in my visual perception. My vision was still of a very European post-modern character, but my environment was so different now. Again, like during the first years in Amsterdam, I felt a tremendous drive to paint, a found a great and cheap space in a not so great part of town and started working on a project that also included poems or rather only their titles. I thought of my feelings and thoughts in a form of a short title, that could later develop into a painting, a poem or a song. After a while I had about 67 of them. I would pick a title that inspired at that moment an interesting vison and soon I had several acrylic paintings, ( maybe 20"/10"). One day I started to work on a title that transcended right in front of my eyes and with my full awareness took me onto a new level of understanding ( autobiography ).
