Artist Statement

Life, existence, and its existential experiences of searching and survival are the main themes in my work.

The single sheets, which are often worlds of their own, are formally composed together with sheets in which images flow from one to the next to form large grid like installations. These installations invite the viewer to wander through the vital, expressive, morbid and also hopeful and to lose themselves within.
