ABOUT 


My art practice is mainly based on photo montage and collage techniques. The camera is an extension of my senses and mind processes when exploring subjects related to body-based life experiences. I am inspired by psychology and philosophy which describes somatic experiencing. For example, the phenomenon of "fragmented memory" has played a major role in recent projects. It's expressed through the difficulty to formulate a coherent story after a traumatic experience. The external and internal course of events are two parallel realities with different structure and logic. It fascinates me and I often return to the phrasing that "inner realities are not a linear story".

In my collage artwork I experience a controlled chaoses of non-linear and distorted forms, and body shapes without claim to physical realism. In that imagery I find a sense of calm.
