Catalogue Note

"For me it is important to create a figure that on the one hand has got an expression and a specific nature but on the other hand it has to be open and ambiguous. It would be wrong to call it a generalization through reduction. It is rather an agglomeration—also in a poetic sense. In that way the figures can become a projection surface for their complex and contradictory human counterpart."
