About my artwork
Through my work I touch on the subtle and intuitive part of life. Those things we all feel, go through and see all around us, often without giving them much notice, attention or importance. I am interested in exploring the connection and relationship between culture and nature and the human inner and outer experience within it. I use many different materials and means of creative expression (performance, film, sculpture and installation) and it is this concept that unites my whole body of work.
Myths, folklore, fairytales as well as my life experiences and everyday observations all inform my practice. The materials and their combinations I use in my work often say more than one can see at the first sight. I carry out an extensive research into their symbolic meanings, connections and uses in culture.
Symbolism is very important in my work as I believe that primal imagery and symbols hold a great power of communication which is understood by all people regardless of their language, nationality, age or education. I try to reach out to people on a subconscious and emotional level.
