The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
My sculptures can be read as three- dimensional representations of
psychological states in which varying levels of abstraction and figuration are
oscillating. By combining materials associated with the body such as hairs, fur,
bones and horns with elements of the furnished interior, the work reveals an
ambivalence of rationality and mystery.
The work centers in a rather absurd, non-linear narrative: Mood, gender and
behavior associations permeate the arrangement of the object (s) in space.
A certain eeriness and uncanny humor undermine issues of color, material and
scale, creating what could be called a kind of “surreal minimalism”.
I am working equally in drawing and sculpture.
My drawings are never studies for sculptures, but instead are independent works
on their own. What connects them to the three- dimensional work is their
premise: the body at large, both human and animal-like. Often combined in
series, my drawings have a certain “dreamlike” feel. While avoiding a linear
narrative, they rather seem to tell a story of fragmented truths (or lies), memories,
curiosities and desires.
