Few ‘real’ kitchens resemble the serene, carefully styled examples of advertisements and brochures. The kitchen is, for most of us a practical place, a workshop where the visual jumble of mismatched ‘tools’ and consumables are concealed behind a calming facade of doors and drawers.

Erik’s mosaic-like compositions give us an unusual insight into the lives of his variously rich, poor and multicultural subjects.
