The photographic images are the result of a sculptural past in which I combined seemingly incompatible materials into installations. The photographic images introduce the body and focus on the connection between object and body. Objects intervene in human space and invite actions. New meanings for objects and the human body arise by placing pre-existing elements in a different context.
For me, my work is a way of connecting art and life. By exploring the body at its physical and sculptural boundaries, a staged reality emerges. Other art forms are part of my photographic image : the architectural column, the sculptural form, the sign-like writing. They explore a new strategy to connect us to the world .

Lines, voids and objects define space. Lines function as fragile markers in space and consist of wood, metal, textiles, chalk or charcoal. My interest is in the line as boundary line. The matter of the sculpture indicates a boundary between inside and outside. At a boundary line, two worlds meet.
When lines are supported, they take over the function of the plinth. I like the fragility of the line vis-à-vis the firmly existence of the object & the way the surrounded space becomes part of the work creating light, reflections and shadows.
