Artist statement

I am intrigued by the moment

The moment of tension just before a bud opens up, a bird flies away, a leaf just before the wind blows it further…


Many of my works are named Balance. I do not seek the balance as a state of peace, it is the balance of walking on the edge that intrigues me.

I play litterally with gravity and also use the balance between different materials.

Even when I use heavy materials I want my works to look light, look as if they can fly  away any moment.
