Artist's Statement

I make sculptures, installations and paintings that are concerned with architectural visions and failures.
The environments I create are mosaics consisting of elements from the real world. They are based on a mixture of spatial experiences from my own everyday life as well as architectural and industrial drawings. I am interested in how the spaces we are surrounded by are juxtaposed and interconnected.

I see my models as three dimensional paintings and as abstract models of my paintings. I construct my models with paper in order to simultaneously create an obstacle for my own working process. The paper can be molded into architectural models, but it also resists the strict geometrical precision of the conventional architectural model. My two dimensional paintings and photographs are abstract details of the models.
