Artist's Statement

Art and science serve the same function: to keep alive the feeling of wonder about the world we live in. I am driven by the search for a truth that lies below the perceptible world. There is an underlying order to the perceived world and in my work I want to make this truth evident.

I work on a computer, a machine that owes it's existence to science. With this logical tool I explore the confusing, illogical world of emotion and passion. I set up a virtual world that is anatomically correct and of astonishing beauty in it’s perfection. The figures mirror our own physical existence, yet are in a virtual world. Upon this geometrical perfect world I explore the energy of emotions.

My work explores the physical body and how it is fused with unpredictable depths of emotions: In the fusion, the wonder of life becomes manifested. My hope is to create works that speak of being in peace and acceptance of our true nature.
