1. Could you describe your work?
Looking at little things and presenting rich worlds that are open for discovery is a central issue in my work. Part of my working method is the use of divers drawing and painting strategies, technique and media. This provides a richness of textural and structural information and can be used to think about relations between divers things in general.
2.What are you referring to? What are the references enclosed in your work?
I believe, poetic work is a process that transforms daily issues and displays them on an abstract level. My work is obviously not referring to conformity and homogeneity. It advocates multiple perspectives, richness in differences, space to act and breathe.
3.How would you like your artwork to be red or felt by the audience?
Like stepping stones laid in moss in a Japanese garden,
which slow the spectator’s pace and satisfy the need for calm,
drawn stories invite us to emotionally relax and be mentally active.
We can contemplate what we see, leaving the rigid social hierarchies
of the everyday world behind us.
In our imagination, we can play out different possibilities that the
narrative could take. We are offered an intensive world that lies open
for discovery, and which allows us to rethink our own experiences.
Such reconsideration can alter our stance and lead to new perspectives.
4. What is the most intimate part of this artwork?
Where it touches you.
