ARTIST STATEMENT

In my art, I study people and their mutual connections. These relationships are a recurring theme. My work is an ongoing study, and each single work is a link, a next step in my process. Each work teaches me something about my relationship towards others, about mutual connections and bonds.

Starting point for my research is found photography. The pictures allow me a glimpse of a world I long for but don't understand at the same time. By working with thread, the images are connected or separated, shaped and reshaped. Recently, I have experimented with Toyobo photopolymer etching as well. Toyobo is a beautiful, subtle technique that gave me the opportunity to enter deep into the pores of the images and play with ink and colours.

Loneliness, power, control, dependency and trust are at the core of my work.
