She works with various media to create the idea of total installation.
"I aim to extend the field of painting. To do this, I use a wide range of materials and medias in my work; Gouache, painting, large sculptures, ceramic sculptures, lino prints, lithographic prints, digitally printed textiles and woven wall hangings. My idea is to create a large coherent painting consisting of many small parts.
I juxtapose different expressions and the result is a colourful scenography in the room. I try to link the works to each other and their surroundings and create a dialogue between artwork and architecture. The work becomes the interior of the room like in a living room. Some of the works mimic the popular appeal of design objects, but are deprived of an actual function.
The aesthetics and play of shapes, colours, surfaces, the balance between the organic, handmade feel and the more controlled industrial expression trumps a real relation to the practicality. It becomes a play with the boundary and the underlying hierarchy between artwork and design object.
I use colours on the walls too, which ignites the shapes, the ornament and the colours in the objects.
t creates a dynamic and a kind of resilient effect between the works; an intangible, swinging, colourful movement back and forth manifests itself - as a huge three-dimensional painting that unfolds in room. The work communicates an intuitive sensory language that seductively encourages experiencing and sensing beyond the mental physical dimensions in which we are used to committing ourselves.
It is the idea that the works speak first and foremost to the senses rather than the intellect, which indicates that art does not necessarily have to be analyzed and have an intellectual meaning, but can also exist alone to be experienced. The intellectual pleasure of 'getting it', is thereby replaced by a physical and sensual presence, that I find much more important."
