My serial painting is about empty houses that I never see in natural. I use medial archives as real estate catalogues to get in touch with the architectures. It's a sort of making portaits of these houses which means not only of the architecture but also by a sort of projection about the biography of the former inhabitants. I put my focus on the left behind and thus on the temporality. In the colourful, bizarre, sinister pictures using surreal elements to tell a story between social reality and kind of dreaming about houses and what they mean to mankind.
