InterestsFor the last 22 years: Transgenetic motifs of ´HUMAN ANIMAL´s in paintings and drawings with the combination of human being and animal, referring to coming possibilities in the future of genetic engineering. Ideas and inspiration comes from a personal, deep interest in experiments and new ways from results in science and research, today and tomorrow. Oil paintings and drawings, in realistic style, are reflecting portrait examples of transgenetic manipulation with human beings and animals. Probably a hypothetical, imaginary development of today but a foreseeable realistic possibility of tomorrow.
