In general my work concerns the fragility of the human body
in relation to the passing of time.

They are works about love, desire, loss, death and mourning 
which are constantly shifting between shimmering hopefulness, 
formalism, bold decoration, concentrated minimalism, existential 
torment and abstraction

I use a variety of techniques involving a constant process of cutting,
perforating, rearranging, assembling, scanning, destroying and mending
papers, textiles, wax and photographs. 
The works are often bold and melodramatic, sometimes silent,
but always in searching of a balance between excess and austerity.

"There are two fundamental possibilities available to an artist: to negate, stripping away until nothing remains, or to accumulate, to embrace additively until one has reached the limit of fullness" (Harald Szeemann)

... my work process is a struggle between those two possibilities.
