In my artistic work I am talking about the ongoing change, connection and communication between the inner and outer worlds, and about the inevitable bond between art and human life in general.
I feel drawn to the tension between opposites, the grey areas between black and white, the confusion and contemplation, stereotypes and prejudice.
Décollage are part of everyday aesthetics. In their wildness, rejection can be deciphered - a manifestation of the spontaneous and direct expression.
Artists like Raymond Hains and Jacques Villeglé recognized the quality of this unconventional form of art. I try to transform this method into our contemporary digital age.
