Organic shapes show complexity. Their lines and colors carry stories about all the detours, trials, doubts and decisions that add depth to life. In my work, I follow that complexity and create shapes that are full of information itself.
Drawings are my basis, as they can be done at any place and any time. The expression is direct and immediate.
When working with light, I am fascinated with the idea that solid borders fall apart. There is a light source emitting light and there is the actual light spreading into its surrounding space – changing its atmosphere and mixing in with everything it can reach.
