Welcome to my website.
Like most other artists, I am always aware of my surroundings – and frequently see situations from the perspective of a composition.
However, the main source of inspiration for my situational sculptures is usually related to past or current comments and conversations as they reflect my environment. My sculptured characters and scenarios represent very real situations (within an artistic interpretation); I relate to their roles, personalities and feelings. With their mini-drama composition, my sculptures can be viewed as a “slice in time”.
Because in the past I may have experienced their situations, I have great empathy with my characters; I understand their frustrations and use a variety of methods of expression.
For example, not only their facial expressions and body language, but also their clothing projects an image that always relates to the main message. Frequently I used feet and men’s ties as metaphors for power and/or connectedness. Read more on my creative process here
