STATEMENT OF WORK

 

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.
