About the work

Main intention is diversity. My approach is complex and uses a wide range of media, including photography, sculpture, objects, water colour and other painting techniques, drawing and prints as well as installations. Two principal aims are a broad spectrum and a focus of activity on the border areas between the media. There are elements of both the material and the immaterial, receptive to borderline experiences.
Projects involving active participation and socially critical initiative such as aging and woman, the obsession with beauty or the search for happiness.

Work in three dimensions opens the way into such diverse fields as ready-mades, little sculptures made of wire, alabastre, wood and objets trouvés. Installations combine a variety of media.
