Artist’s Statement

The starting points of my sculptures can be found in everyday life. It includes everything human. Through material handling, color and presentation, the familiar objects get meaning, which is hidden in the middle of everyday life. I seek a simple expression that at the same time would open up thoughts and touch the viewer. The sculptures as concrete objects always appeal to the sence of touch and thus raise images.
As a subject, man is endlessly interesting in all his efforts. Expressions of good, evil, power, and violence are constantly present.
