All my works are based on re-using existing objects, mostly coming from the garbage, fleamarkets and thriftstores, and can be considered as an ongoing research for the expressive, sculptural, emotional and other hidden possibilities in the full sense of the word. By putting them in an unexpected context, or giving them another purpose than what they are made for or using them as purely sculptural elements, I try to add more dimensions to them, or give them another significance. I also try to let the fact, that every single object reflects a certain time, culture or history, play a role in my work. To cut it short: like a painter has his paint, canvas and brushes, I have my objects, materials and tools.
My assemblages come to existance through association, and often this process starts with only one part of what is going to be the final result. But it also happens frequently that I suddenly see connections between some of the things amidst which I live from day to day, and which I often have since a long time. Sometimes I am really suprised that I did not see these connections any sooner. Also coincidence plays a highly appreciated role in my work, because this stipulates what I find on my way, and which materials I consequently have at my disposal. This makes my work quite unpredictable, which is, together with the possibility to work with and combine many different materials and techniques, for me the attraction of making assemblages.
It is my perfect medium.
