During the last years I concentrated on drawing in a new approach to drawing, for experimentation and development.

These works ask questions for example about integrity, discipline and tradition.
They explore and employ instability and playfulness, which is balanced with solid elements. In some of the drawings some more sinister undertones happened to creep into the work during the act of creating.
 At the same time there is often an unseriousness, playfulness, oddness and humour that things are not stable, but in progress, transient, unknown, in between, out of grasp. Spontaneous creation and contemplation and analytical reflection both go hand in hand during the process.
 It is a constant juggling between flexibility, openness, control and boundaries.
The idea of a journey, of travelling without knowing the outcome, is reflected in searching and discovering different approaches in my drawing, as in my other art practices (mixed media, sculpture, painting, installation)
I see my approach in my art practice very much like life itself unfolds for me. Crossing borders not only means taking elements from one art practice into the other, but also taking influences from different sources of life: personal experiences, social and international politics, connections to history, encounters with people. All these aspects intermingle and appear somehow in the artwork as resonance.
