"I am interested in working with installation in and with the space, but there are also sculptures in my work that stand alone. Sculptural and three-dimensional work has always been my great passion. I feel at home in it.
For some years now, the world of furnishings, people and their imagination have played a central role in my work. This includes furniture in particular, because it is part of our everyday use. Life without it is unthinkable. But also fantasy, understood as the ability to create completely new worlds in which no laws of nature and no rules of logic apply, which is not tangible in reality, but gives life a deeper dimension.
I mainly work with clay because I find it easy to work with and it allows me to express myself most precisely. Clay is one of the oldest materials for making works of art and one of the classic, sculptural (primordial) materials par excellence. In my work, I try to create a tension between this traditional meaning and my fantastic, surreal worlds. For me, this way of working has an enormously refreshing effect.
Another important stylistic device in my work is humour. What can be perceived as humorous - and attractive - is the way I relate the bizarre, the imaginative, the practical and the functional. I like to invent imaginative mythical creatures or mix the inanimate and the animate. An example of this is collecting beautiful, green and lush moss, which I then arrange between my sculptures, whose main material and surfaces are a shiny, lifeless and cracked grey.
In my presentations, I want to create a special mood and atmosphere. To do this, I also work with light and use special lighting. My aim is to create the impression of a distant and alien world that you can engage with all your senses - if you want to."
