ABOUT ME

I work with sculpture, objects and installation. The source of inspiration thrives from subject matter concerning politics and contemporary questions. I aim to comment and create an arena for reflection, rather than giving straight forward answers and easy solutions. Lately I have also engaged in working on an intuitive basis, without being bound to a strict concept or other restrictions.


My aim is to renew the esthetics of the ceramic tradition of sculpture, and its role in the contemporary art scene.


The sculptures are visually shiny and smooth with clean features. Often in combination with readymades and other materials. To explore and experiment with different materials and medias, is a central part of my artistic venue. And to to give the works a machine-made and mass-produced character and to imitate a commercial aesthetic expression. With these elements I create an unconventional and surrealistic landscape.
