My artistic practice is based on abstract investigations and reproductions of specific objects and themes, experimenting with new perspectives regarding time, place and matter. I question and create in a quest to understand and challenge our constructed reality, and the definitions that form our foundation of understanding.
I thrive on, and at the same time, am challenged by elements that are not easy to discern, and in this way, glass has found its place as an ambiguous factor.
In my mind, this medium hosts an almost mystical character, allowing for unforeseen occurrences in a process where the material can repeatedly be transformed from soft to hard.
With each movement, the prior state of the material is erased, covered and re-arranged, and the subject before and after its present form holds the potential of something unknown, and a sense of wonder.
