Translating my inner world of forms and images into art, implies dealing with the beautiful and the ugly,

the reasonable and the absurd.

 

From the teachings of motherhood and new feminine perspectives to unprocessed trauma, joy, a little madness and a great affinity for the surreal and the odd…

 

In my works I tend to play with the unpredictable outcomes of less controllable materials. At the same time, I often proceed to seek symmetry and balance in the arbitrary. I get excited, when things go unexpected ways and I’m challenged to find new methods of approaching a piece. Especially in times of an ever-increasing digitalization, which leaves small room for the uncontrollable and unpredictable, I choose not to have the option of deleting the ‘unwanted’ at the click of a button.

 

I endeavor to dive deep, to search for and embrace my own truth. Translating my inner world of forms and images into art, implies dealing with the beautiful and the ugly, the reasonable and the absurd.

A large portion of my work reflects the significant processes motherhood elicits regarding femininity. In my approach towards motherhood I try to shed a more realistic light on it, to a certain extent counteracting its glorifying depictions throughout history. Even though the issues addressed by my works come from personal experiences, the origins and interconnections of life in its collective sense are explored in a fundamental way.
