”I firmly believe in work, not inspiration. By assembling and connecting objects, images or materials into unexpected ways they radiate and evoke their own essence, but also contaminate their neighbours. My work is always on the margin of dreamlike universes with bridges to the natural world. Common to it all is a pretty elaborate but precise & consistent iconography, its symbology rooted in nature. Always water, air, earth, fire, salt and sun; the life that is created by these and who itself creates through these. I explore archetypes, formulas and techniques that bridge intuition
with logic, reality with daydreaming, spirituality with sensuality.”
