Life is an ongoing flirtation with death, ending in consumption
Ever since I was a child, I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of relationships and the unrelenting paradoxical divergence of the human mind.
My work has a strong focus on transience, female sexuality, relationships and primal emotions.
As subtle forms become transformed through diligent and personal practice, the viewer is left with a testament to the limits of our physical body and limitlessness of the metaphysical world of our spirits.
In my paintings and drawings I am researching femininity in all it’s facets. Fugaciousness and mortality is something I do not express by showing an aging process but I reference to it with the Skeletons and other symbols which appear in a lot of my drawings and paintings. I am working throughout an inner need to express instinctive desires or emotions. The immortality of the soul manifests itself in my work, as aspects of nature, demons or goddesses which are reappearing throughout my work.
Via my photographs on the other hand I want to convey the emotions as I experience them in daily life itself. Often bewildering, mostly rough and within in this roughness, sometimes as pure beauty.
