My work reflects my intimate world. I often construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, and cities that mirror my dreams and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past or people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out, and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries.
My work is about finding refuge and freedom.
I am inspired by the everyday rhythms in life; how we move, interact, build, love and heal.
And I’m fascinated by shelters, industrial construction work, and the rules of aerodynamics.
My most recent works show a slight change in shape and form. I wanted to create pieces that represent movement, or rather, the ability to fly.
The collection as a whole shows my view on the ever-changing dynamics between the needs of the individual and the safety, strength and demands of the collective.
