statement

from mostly my own snapshots and an occasional (documentary-) still from the internet, I make digital collages. then I reintroduce them into tangibility, drawing with a precious metal pin on (with a personally mixed gesso) prepared paper: using silverpoint, the predecessor of the modern pencil.

in my visual motives and in the structure, form and direction between them, I seek rhyme. I paste them together in a playful, slightly estranging (but harmoniously presented) temporary reality with references to ours, hoping to create a fresh look on age-old motives. the low contrast and intricate weaving typical for this ancient technique are a much needed gentle emphasis on empathy and an ode to observing quietly in this loud age.
