Memories are like ghosts

'You could think that my paintings are unusual, but to me they are very realistic. If my work looks extraordinary, it is due to the juxtaposition of things which generally wouldn't be connected. This way, I show several moments at the same time. But I do it in the most realistic way possible. My paintings are no interpretations of dreams or nightmares, like many people think. But they can have a spooky character, that is because of certain memories on which the paintings are based. Memories are like gosts.' LĂ©opold Rabus in an interview by Eric Quint
