It is April and it is a strange turbulent time, nothing is certain. Everything is different and what we do is
mainly indoors. The weather is beautiful at the moment I write this, I have chosen to install my work
outside because my work adapts to current events. I see the space around the work as an arena, an
arcade just like the space in which an individual moves and can move freely. The arena is a negative
space in which the works come together at different levels of age, thoughts and emotions over years,
where the work can form itself, where it can compete for its place in space. The images represent the
zeitgeist in which we live, things that are always around me or that have amazed and / or inspired me.
The state of being brings my work into a whole, I will always be influenced by what reflects on the work as
a constant shift in meaning, form, place and time. The color green is the primary color used in this series,
it started with an investigation into the toy “slime”, bright green and super slimy. Without any fixed state,
without a possible evaluation, it is impossible to measure as a free form. My practice and my work always
have a direct or sporadic connection to transformation and the snapshots between them. This series of
works is about the different stages in my life as an artist and as a person, expressed in abstract form and
