Artist Statement
My work derives from a fascination about how all things in this world constantly move, get themselves together and fall apart. Even the slowest things do this, like earth plates for example.
Amidst of this, we people live, involuntary being part of it and looking for some kind of grip. We want to tame those wild things, from the sea to population groups, to our own tears and our digestion systems. At the same time, we do our bests to let go, to lie down and breathe.
I explore this friction in different kinds of media.
