Statement

A few years ago i would have said that my work was about structure, or more specifically about how one constructed one's world. Over time this has changed to a more simple and basic premise for my work. I want to explore these little daily moments that we all experience, these glances or gestures, in which there is a connection made with another. In these moments a small door opens up into a large new world that, if only for a second, makes us glimpse as what it means to be human.
