My works of art are not so much inspired by the external world in which I live but rather by subjective needs: the world of dreams, wishes and desires.
For me, art is the translation of a thought, an idea or an illusion, that becomes real. I follow my ambitions in form and content and realize that neither the formal ambitions cover the content nor the content determines the form.
To "make art" means to me that I formulate my imagination by means of form, colour and material.
My work shows the human body in fragmentary associations suggested by folds. The suggestion does not refer to the human being as an object with its individual beauty; it is merely an abstraction of beauty and by no means a true image. The ambiguity and vagueness are meant to complicate any direct interpretation, both in the real and transcendental sense. I believe that this has to do with ethical and cultural traditions.
