Artist Statement

I am interested in man-made and natural objects encountered in everyday life, analysing and reworking them until their original condition - natural, artificial or digital - is brought into question. By dismantling conventional categories that were established by the baroque Wunderkammer, or “Cabinet of Curiosities,” the divide between the organic and the synthetic collapses.

Other levels of our lives are also involved in this global process. My work as an artist calls upon my scientific training, during which I became aware of the importance of drawing in understanding histological and botanic structures. Currently, I am focused on making digital works, however these are also fundamental to furthering my practice in collage, sculpture and wide-format ‘plotter’ drawing. I am usually either editing found objects and images, or trying to produce similar things from scratch, aiming to present new perspectives in this field.
