As a visual finder, I journey through a physical ‘here and now’. A voyage through different landscapes such as industry, folklore, food, Western art and nature. From these landscapes I take images, sculptural shapes, colour combinations that attract and fascinate me. I keep them in a room in my head.
The material I come across in this physical ‘here and now’ I collect in my studio. These materials are often waste or debris from our society. But for me they are like a ticket to another dimension. In my work, I engage with these physical materials and the images in my head.
Like a cook who combines flavours and textures, I set out in search of ways to connect the physical ingredients both with each other and with the pictures in my fridge.
Imitation, staging, assembly and bricolage are actions in this constant quest for melting points and visual explosions. Contrast and absurd humour are essential spices in the sculptures, collages and drawings I present to the viewer.
