My work centers around installations using mostly traditional media like painting or drawing, seeking to turn narrations upside down by using conventional imagery in new contexts.
Working as well as an author and publisher of art-magazines, as well as curator, the integration of language, narration and text to create internal, memory based images, moods and sentimental yet concrete moments of freedom and independence is also one of the main interests of my work.
