My sculptures represent touch, sensuality and imperfection which needs to be protected.
I hide my vulnerabilities and emotions in my sculptures. In this way I try to protect them against the outside world. My thoughts are ordened by using materials like fabric, glass, plaster and pur foam.
I treat my work as arrangements. Sometimes it’s necessary to remove, hide or fade certain parts to emphasize the vulnerability of the body in the sculpture. The outcome is a sculpture which seems to exist on its own.
A new creature emerges, exposed, but at the same time concealed from its surroundings.
