During human time the figure and symbols have been magical, carrying strength. I want to continue my art has evolved through my personal experiences, great literature, and, especially, through my travels. I am fascinated by legends and art that have spoken loudly to us through the centuries. Humankind has not changed in such a degree where we no longer have a need for stories. I use my life as an artist in this way – in the present. In this pursuit I try to form my artistic language in a present context, as a modern artist with modern techniques, with connections to the past – and the future.
Ever since I became a practicing artist, other cultures – in the Middle East and North America. My travels have been driven by this fascination with the similarities and apparent differences in viewing, contemplating and describing the human condition – in different ages and different cultures.
At my residency at SFAI, I experienced a welcoming and creative atmosphere.
For me it always takes some time to settle and start working, and in this period I got tremendous support from SFAI and also the other artist working there at the time.
It was my great luck that the dance group “Dancing Earth” was there at the time. Here I found the inspiration for my work, lagde monotype, that I have continued to develop and exhibit after returning home. I am very grateful I got the chance to stay there and have the hope one day to return.
