Brief Summary

These photomontages come from taking pictures of fragments, the delicate beauty of a slender stem or the haphazard wreckage that surrounds are lives, At first glance they might seem negligible things to which one would normally pay no attention at all. Nevertheless, these fragments and details hold an intrinsic beauty and attract my eye. As Leonardo, wrote: “Artists should look into peeling plaster walls until they can see images emerging from the shapes of the plaster”. 
These randomly savaged parts are building blocks, catalysts for ideas and themes that very often lead me on journeys into unchartered waters. The aim is to form images that contain echoes and metaphors for my preoccupations: a world out of balance, damaged yet vigorous and beautiful.
