In order to find out about my essence as a human being and creator in this world, I am searching for the perfect form of creation. For as far as I can remember I have been interested in these questions and the things that I spend my time on are probably partly initiated from there. This spend time is mostly getting defeated by the landscape, learning about other beings and searching for things that leave a mark.
For my work I gather different factors and creatures and bring them together to realize how they react to one another. This often results in a new story and a new world for me to discover and to build on.
Another part of my work and research consists of the collection of things of beauty that give me a feeling of essence and that answer some of my questions about existence. These are often objects or situations with defined structures and an ungraspable dynamic.
The work I make, often functions as a bridge between my obsession or ideas about beauty, my thoughts and the audience. It exposes the structures, depth, detail and dynamic that I am able to capture or create. This way I try to reach a point where someone gets an experience and the work will continue developing in the mind.
In the end I hope that my work can answer some of the unanswered questions about existence and the importance of beauty.
