artist statement

The weight of the materials and the exploration of balance, with the self-sustaining tension that arises in between, represents an important aspect of my artistic practice.
In this, forms are altered by playing with variations, as a consequence of which the limits of stability are reached as the various materials are combined. Such formal variability is much like the dynamics of a sand dune, which disperses and is brought back together by the weather over the course of the year, even so remaining just one among many out in the desert.
This parallel between a natural phenomenon and my thought process is to be understood as the formality of freedom engendered with the capacity to act.
Intentional contradictions are an essential feature of my existential self-efficacy, which is reflected in freedom from norms in my artistic activities.

To me, choices between natural resources (wood, clay, minerals) and their industrially produced counterparts embody questions in a socioeconomic context.
