Autonomous work, collaboration with non-artists, the Children’s Atelier, projects in Nepal: my work is varied but clearly interconnected in terms of content and methods. Art for me is about visualizing the essence we share as humans. I seek the heart of the matter in details and stories that easily go unnoticed but are potentially important and inspiring when you look at them and give them shape. >>
In the early works on rice paper, the starting point was always a picture connected to the time I was a child.
There came a moment when being engaged exclusively in my own art was no longer enough. I started working on projects that involved cooperation with non-artists.
Also Nepal is a workplace for me: the ubiquitous handiwork and crafts are an endless source of inspiration.
The essence of documenting is watching and listening: you catch the moment when something is created that matters, and you zero in on it.
