With my work I’m searching for connections.
I find them in simple objects and images I see and use daily but also in more complex subjects like religion and media. nowadays, individualism is the standard.
I want to ask questions about this. questions that summon to reflect about how people relate to each another. I research the resemblance that connect all of us.
but without the intention to communicate this in an unambiguous manner. I translate this research in objects and (temporal)
Installations in which the application of the chosen material plays an significant role.
the material I use most are blankets. it is a intriguing and
polyvalent material with contradictionary qualities. blankets protect and give warmth. they suggest comfort but are really oppressive, irritating and often a fire hazard. I try to use all these medium specific qualities. but there are more reasons for me to work with blankets. they seem to absorb, have a special texture and the colours are fantastic. the application possibilities are endless. I use them in layers, with stencils etc.. blankets have a rough texture which forces me to stylize my language of image. therefore a continuous interaction arises within the searching and finding of the own form.
