Artist Statement


I work with the idea of metamorphosis, decay and the transformation of materials; sculptural objects and their photographic documentation, as well as the deconstruction and transformation of the photographic image itself. Combining seemingly disparate images and objects, I initiate a process in which the object or image is removed from its context, its referent and expected narrative; I further explored this through the arrangements and combination of works; with the intention to create ambiguous narrations, formations of details, or a kind of temporary entropy.

The subjects of my imagery, depicting scenes, spaces, elements, figures, or abstract shapes are less significant than my wish to prompt a deeper sense of reflection, a grasp of the intangible, or a glimpse of the other.
