Artist Statement

As an artist, I stay close to home. I make pictures that hold the moment.

Childhood interests me; the child’s innocence and frailty; the sense that the shortest times leave the deepest impressions. Exploring different media, formats and techniques, and using fewer strokes, lines, surfaces or elements to tell the story more efficiently is part of the process.

Central to my work is composition: the relation between motif, background, space, anti-space, and detail. I render space visible in relation to the human, the human and the space as a composition. I am interested in the body as a landscape, the human as a phenomenon and the roles that we as humans take upon ourselves.

I see the human face as a mirror of the ground we share. I use the human as material, reducing, enlarging and diminishing it to find its final form.
