Wherever art history leaves room for interpretation, my imagination stakes its claim. My fantasies, free associations and assumptions stand alongside my historic reconstructions. They color my life and broaden my world: a second, imaginary world besides the “genuine” one.
That's the world I want to wander through. To experience another time and place by making that world tangible. So I work tirelessly on objects and artefacts that might belong to such a world. Currently, that world is based on medieval art, saturated by Catholicism and richly decorated objects.
But I'm not trying to recreate an era. I'm creating my own world.
I am, after all, a contemporary artist.
