    About my Work
    Artist Statement 16-17

    In daily life it is easy to miss the beauty of the surrounding environment. For me, beautiful things could be seeing a sparkle in the water, the sun which is lighting up some pieces of dust or small cracks in clay. These examples are visual details, atmospheres, filtered from daily life. Often my work starts from a detail like that.

    Such a visual detail is volatile. It is over before you realize that it happened. For me, those small moments leave a huge impression. It makes me long to be in that moment for a longer period of time and emerge in it. My longing for that visual detail causes motivation and necessity to produce a work.

    Due to my longing to be in a volatile moment the work often is a large scale sculpture or installation.

    Then, it is time to experience the produced work.
