Art Statement

 With poignant and haunting presence my work glamorize decay, corrosion, decomposition, deconstruction and chance while explores the realm of psychoanalytic, philosophic and esoteric literature in a free associative fashion which focuses on subliminal erotica, twentieth century design and architecture and selected found objects with oblique histories.

The use of radical materials is basically my main inspiration but many of my influences are as diverse as the works of filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, painters Max Ernst and Antoni Tapies or sculptors like Louise Nevelson and Marjan Teeuwen. 

These different directions are gathered together to create new variations which subtly inhabit the paintings, sculptures and assemblages like imaginary metaphorical scaffolding. The unique and complex fabrication of these artworks was developed and perfected over time in my daily practice. Every stroke or cut builds toward an aesthetic dialect that although layered with obscure meanings is still legible across all disciplines.   I strive to create an internal alchemy so that my works appear to be spontaneously occurring totem-like entities, cabinet of curiosities when not as contemporary sculpture or abstract painting. The viewer is invited to become my accomplice in creating their own convenient interpretation for these artworks, imbuing them with their own existential sense of poetry, mystery and humor."
