CEAC exhibition

At the basis of all my work lies a strong fascination for natural processes and phenomena. These sometimes dramatic processes, such as isolation, expansion, transformation, growth and decay are interpreted in a poetic, personal and sometimes cynical/humouristic way. Associations with architectural proposals allow these works to enter a twilight zone between desire and reality that in turn raises questions about their function or meaning. On the one hand they can be seen as comments on our everyday surroundings and urban environment by proposing buildings that seem to be designed for the expression of discomfort, spirituality or a lack of ideology or function. Other works transgress this seemingly critical attitude. In these works the strong links to the aforementioned natural or universal processes and their psychological parallels prevail and cause the proposed structures to be nothing more but representations of a particular state of mind or personality.
