Arie van Geest

The structure of my story and my way of thinking are closely related to Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and the Chants de Maldoror by the Comte de Lautréamont, two highly fantastic tales.

They arouse emotions in me, evoking images which I try to paint. I think it is essential to combine these images, but they are filtered and padded in a somewhat theatrical manner.
