ARTIST STATEMENT

With thoughts about uncertainty and loneliness, I keep creating my traveling companions – presenting a logic to persuade and confuse. This way I get insight into private spheres, I see surroundings I cannot possibly visit and I will have conversations I would not dream of initiating with anyone living. Step by step – though writing, drawing, and sculpting – I begin to know specific events, curious people, my own relationship to the outside world.
