Statement

I make sculpture, installation and paintings. Sometimes I write about sculpture or art in general. Sometimes I do performance. And sometimes I curate exhibitions. My practice examines the relationship between abstract and representation. Between Forms and structure. Between tendency and emotion. I am interested in the model of experience and the way scenarios are manipulated. These ideas have a kind of ‘Janus-Faced’ nature that constitutes in-between states. Their ambiguity is what I thrive for. The point is to create images regardless what form it may take.
