In my installations and sculptures, the materials play a central role.
I work with color, structure and the tactility of different surfaces, creating clear contrasts between the different materials. The objects are poetically balanced between being recognizable, figurative elements, and somewhat more abstract and ambiguous. Abstraction is an important reduction to uncover a fundamental essence. The work gives associations to both organic nature, and urban industries. The various elements allows form and material to stage a situation or a scenery, in which one can sense a story.
