My artistic practice is about materializing human personalities and their personal relationships to both subjects and objects. I wish to create visual poetry. The aim is to show the spectators something they can relate to, something personal – based on my own experiences, it’s about sharing.
I wish to invite the viewer into my mental diary, which is crucial regarding my practice. I enjoy the very contradiction of juxtaposing between playful expressions and it’s seriousness. Through metaphors, I often characterize the abilities of the materials that is used and projecting them into traits of personalities. By using materialistic representations, I wish to explore personal experiences and unveil the psychological discoveries of thoughts, feelings and memories. I consider my work as a mixture of material-based and confessional art.
I enjoy writing diaries and letters. My work can often be reminded of trivial objects or elements from the everyday-life, such as a leg of a chair, stools, a dining table, a seesaw, a picture-frame, the transition of two seasons or a paper plane. I’m interested in the ever-developing sides of the inner human being, and I believe the objects that surrounds us can be associated with these memories that changes us. We all experience changes in life – a process, which is inevitable and essential for personal growth, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. It’s all about the process and it’s different perspectives. Whether I’m working on sculpture, installation, photography or drawing, it’s a performative act in the process. I rarely know what the outcome will be when I work. There are a few guidelines that I give myself in the beginning of every project, but I always break them. Frankly, I don’t even know what I’m doing half of the time when I’m in the studio. I attempt a lot, fail a lot and gain something every now and then.
Art-practice for me is mostly about failing.
