'My superhero-related work is not about superpower. If you look at my superheroes, not so much in the collages but in the paintings, you will discover mostly figures that are deranged or broken, some of them even seem to fall apart or they blend with other characters Another aspect I'm very much interested in is the role of the superhero as a medium of propaganda during the Second World War. The Superheroes are an archetype, simple cultural icons, but they are indeed very complex characters which allow a wide range of readings and rewritings. It's really not about keeping the figure intact or fetishising them'.
