»In my artistic work I refer to the anatomical prerequisites of human perception. I experiment with transformation processes of material in order to create connections of physical qualities and perception. I am interested in the relationship between introspection and expression, concepts of conscious and unconscious, the potential of imagination and gesture. It is my aim to treat the border between outside and inside in my artistic work to visually expand them out as a space.«
