Statement

At the core of my work lies a fundamental curiosity to explore, and interest in, nature as it relates to human existence. I am fascinated by symbols and rituals as well as by the unpleasant and dark tensions inherent within life.
 
I combine and experiment with form, material, technique and theme until I find a type of unity, maybe harmony in the disharmonic. Inter-Uterine-Devices (IUD`s), nails in gold, cast pig’s hearts, orchids in lead and aluminium airplanes hence achieve – albeit paradoxically – a coherent whole.
