ARTIST STATEMENT 

 

I see myself primarily as a draftswoman, researching different materials through drawing: paper, wood, 35mm film, textile.

In my artistic work I deal with the inconspicuous, the immediate, the in-between.

I am also interested in transformation processes. Natural forms overlap clear constructions, fine lines swallow the intense color behind it and seemingly intact structures slowly start to crumble. My work is a kind of reflection of our current existence, shaped by mutually complementary contradictions. The emerging drawings are more a conjecture than a fact, invisible instead of visible, doubtful instead of firmly convinced.

My colour palette is limited to black and white and shades of grey. Through this reduction I manage to uncover the core of the work, like the skeleton of a leaf.
