There is a sacred feeling within the dark interiors of my Mystère du bayou noir series. These large and looming, supernatural interiors could be perceived as cathedrals or divine sanctuaries. My choice of depicting these strange and sometimes eerie landscapes, ties in with my ongoing fascination with transcendence, mortality, the spiritual and the sublime: universal themes which have always been prevalent in my work. Collectively they affirm the heroic aspects of landscape painting that historically have often been dominated by male artists.
