ARTIST STATEMENT

I’m a photographer working with experimental photography, using camera-less techniques. My practice in the last few years involves the cyanotype process, which creates as a final result monochromatic blue/white images. The images attain an abstract form, responding rather to inner schemes, than images of the actual world.

In my work, I explore states of the conscious and unconscious mind that remain hidden and unrevealed, until I bring them to the surface through the artistic procedure. For me it’s an attempt to comprehend oneself as being part of a larger energy system called the world.  In doing so, the created images can be considered to be mental images, which often maintain a contemplative character and hopefully transfer an energy on their own.
