Description

“My sculptures are created without a model or template. They are not to be understood as portraits, but rather the product of my thoughts. They arise from the naive thought that it makes sense to produce a face or a human form, as our bodies are closest to us and are immediately perceived by everyone as accessible and understandable. Through the material and the various production processes, they take on different degrees of accuracy of the human form or move away from the actual form again.

For me, sculpture is strongly linked to materiality. It is always located in real space and is very close to the production process. That is why molds and the traces of hands and tools remain.

Color and pigments are used to highlight and capture gestures in the sculpture.

My works often have a mystical character. I use mystical and archaic forms to create a certain mood that I find in trap, techno music or romantic paintings (such as those by Gustave Doré) and these blend with my own world.”
