Artist statement
In my minimal and colourful installations I use everyday materials, such as tape, foil and paper, to make looking at the work and experiencing it accessible and honest. Just as the already present elements in the space – light, lines, shapes, frames, etcetera – form an open medium; they are there and discernable. I prefer images or gestures in art to be accessible. A viewer should not need knowledge before experiencing a work. Therefore I refer to the given world around us, to how this shapes and colours our experiences. Space works as a definition, a framework that we have to deal with as a status quo. Within this framework I want to offer a suggestion or a way-out to the boundaries that are placed before us and by our selves with pre-set expectations and logic. My work should appeal to our experience before interpretation, before we use our lingual consciousness, to discuss the perception of the viewer.
