Artist statement




MY WORK IS AN EPIC PRODUCTION, THAT QUESTIONS QUALITY, QUANTITY, RISK AND FREE TIME.






My work is about enjoyment.
My work is queer,
is fun
and is about last night. 


My aesthetics uses seductive and playful strategy by engaging medium of painting, installation and sculpture. In my work appears objects of a routine use, fitness tools, vacation accessoires, marschmello colours. Everyday objects are altered or detached from their original functions in order to question obligation (Pflicht) and necessity (Bedürfnis). I like to work with organic materials, where in a play with food and groceries I focus on the concept of materiality, especially at a moment of destruction or recycling idea. Likening my work to a fever of a disco night, with all sorts of amusement moments and experiencing connections with a human kind. I push the work to be perceived as not supposed to be a “high art”.
