About me

My work directly responds to my surroundings and uses everyday experiences as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of middle class values, the work approaches a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, involving the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and seductive although the idea of function following form in the work is always present.
It is an investigation into representations of (seemingly) contemporary ages and situations as well as depictions and ideas that can only be realised in mixed media art, in what I call "Contemporary Living": a  research in the way we live now, its connections with the past and its impact in the future.
