The works in this series depict nocturnal outdoor scenes and medium shots and close-ups of fictitious home and museum-like surroundings. The notion of playing with artificial light and light reflections is central to this series. Some of these paintings are clearly cinematic, even if both the composition and framing of the images rather refers to old painting. Through his experiences with his solo show at the Galleria Borghese museum in Rome in 2009, the artist developed a predilection for the frontal composition in painting, typical for the Renaissance era. Frontality also refers to the theatre and the act of staging, of directing the spectator's gaze; an interest that is generally present throughout the artist's oeuvre.
