Artist Statement

I explore the human, urban and natural landscape. The ‘landscapes’ are representations of humanity‘s desires and growth, of our actions, of our very being – and thus, in turn, of our transience and mortality. Of particular fascination to me is the transitive moment when the superficially apparent - the alleged order and beauty - tilts into the failure concealed behind.
Transition includes modification and change from one state to another. I‘m interested in the topic of the transitory moment, where a wealth of opportunities can coexist. This process, which is characterized by the presence and absence, indicates a possible event which invites‘ me - the viewer - to a dialogue of the moment.
