Artist Statement

The themes that are spurring my fantasy are the stages of development from the first signs of patterns up to the precious instant of their fulfilment and then the following process of decay, where finally no pattern or order is recognisable. Especially intriguing are the processes of crystallisation. How it starts from zero and where the whole system suddenly seems to have accumulated enough energy to develop its special pattern.  I like the thrill of observing the elements on the limit of equilibrium, the suspense just before collapse, where a fragile stability still holds the structures together.
