The Borderliners is a series of paintings that displays anonymous figures caught at borders and edges, crossing through or left outside. The figures in the paintings roam through distorted landscapes of broken windows and barbed wire fences. The smashed window of Borderliners III is a threathening take on the classic theme of figures looking through a window in painting. Borderliners V is an early study for Night Vision and based on a newspaper image of bystanders in a shootout trying to find a place to hide. Borderliners I and II are more direct commentaries on the situation refugees have to endure, seeking to portray the humanitarian situation. The settings of Borderliners attemp to create a whole different kind of Push-and-Pull effect, leaving the observer of the painting mostly on the other side, the safe side.
