A few words on my work...

 

I have always been completely fascinated by the inner workings and strange behaviour of the human animal. A beautiful animal. A horrible animal. A funny animal.

A somehow always lonely animal.

It is this animal I seek to comprehend, to touch, tickle and to move. I strive to do so by creating pieces that depict mental spaces – bring human states of mind, body and being into life. Make them tangible and thus easier to understand, talk and wonder about – and perhaps even change.

It is of the utmost importance to me, that my pieces are honest and well crafted. After all, they strive to deal with serious business. Thus, everything is put forth – there is no cheating and cutting corners. If a piece looks like it can be worn – it can be worn.

If I put in an effort – to me, it is a way of showing the spectators, that I take them seriously. I want to engage people, make them invest their time, thoughts and emotions in my pieces – therefore I myself do the same.
