Artist Statement

 

My graphic work contains elements of both drawing and collage and my artistic research is strongly influenced by the tradition of British Pop Art. The Drawings are often depictions of introspective states; emotions, inner thoughts, and dreams. I investigate in my work the generation of individual identity; a sense of „self“, within the context of culture. Are we „preformed“? To what degree do we „deform“ from a natural state, if any, from which we are born? What factors shape us? Each paper work represents different aspects of this spectrum, from questioning

the existence of an origin, to the different processes we undergo to reach our current state of being. 

Interpersonal relationships are my main source of inspiration and the subject of most of my works. I like to show the world as a landscape of surreal juxtapositions in permanent flux and movement. Figuratively speaking, I try to design a „different world“ and to create my own rules of image-making.

The philosophy and the artistic research of visual perception and the correlation between personal experiences and drawing processes are my main interests. My aim is to investigate the way human vision works. Conceptual issues include presentations of self-image and the role of narrative in both interpersonal relations and the construction of the self.

What does it mean to construct an image in this sense? Perhaps the underlying conceptual structure could be to create „images under construction“, or works in progress, so to speak, made with the intent to investigate the endless latent possibilities of material on paper.
