How do you turn thoughts into thoughts? How does one shine through something that is not verifiably anchored?
I feel thoughts like a transparent, organic net, which moves fluidly between reality and illusion and connects all interspaces like a misty veil. This net is subject to permanent transformation; it creates spaces and times that we pass through and to which we bind ourselves.
Each of my works is a reflection of my thought movements. It is the capture of an indescribable phenomenon and a mental game between possibilities and probabilities.
When I draw, I split mental activities, investigate the attachment to life forms and objects, seek the related exchange between our thinking and the microcosm and macrocosm.
In doing so, I use geometric and organic forms and patterns, subtract and add numbers and signs, reduce the given, and model thoughts into a kind of organism. Lines and words bear witness to my thought processes. The paper format helps to provide order to the ideas and to move me within different perspectives.
I prefer to work with ink, pencil and light paper. I rarely use colors, only when I want to emphasize something. The drawings also serve as a template for three-dimensional objects and installations.
