SHORT ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Much of my inspiration is found in organic structures and the micro and macro worlds visible in tree bark. By cutting apart and reforming; piece for piece re-modelling; a whole new world opens up; a new story can be told.

 

I have always been tickled by the urge to travel, the need to see new things, and live pure escapism. I see my work as a possibility for all that, telling stories which evolve often from my own experiences, giving some work an autobiographical touch. However, a nonsensical story line can unfold, often accompanied by a humorous twist - inexplainable, but there. And to me it doesn't matter why, my „Looking Glass“ goes everywhere with me. It offers new perspectives with even a touch of the ridiculous, whenever desired.

 

My favoured working medium is Indian ink, the drawing nib sometimes cuts into the paper and each new layer forms the structure and construction. But also any form of cutting to carve linoleum or wood for relief prints, or cutting lines and forms on paper serve me well too.
