Artist statement

In my work I address themes of the enigmatic, the symbolic and the archaic. Based on a fascination for objects that do not allow definitive attributions in terms of their purpose or function, I develop my sculptural works.

In my artistic practice, I immerse myself in an intuitive, playful process in which I am guided by sensual parameters such as the haptics and texture of the materials used and often by how they function. While interacting with the material, intuitively perceived visions of bodies or objects emerge. On a visual level, they transform into abstract forms that evade designation or categorization and create a tension between the known and unknown as well as the familiar and unfamiliar. I am interested in what lies in the subtle space in between.

Future issues related to modern technologies, post-humanism but also ideas from pop culture such as science fiction or concepts from religion and mysticism play an important role as a source of inspiration.
