My sculptures behave like a nun-punk hybrid. I select materials carefully, choosing them as signifiers for periods in history. In my process the line between found and made objects is blurred and assemblage allows for me to create an original product. Precious and industrial, the media consciously exploit differences between painting and sculpture. I am interested in how a work can be approachable while still stimulating a social critique. Text piece, ?Pheromones are the last form of magic?, is an advertising slogan but is also about something primal, desperate, and alchemic, which has remained in us since cave ages. We are animals with a profound taste for materiality; yet we still yearn for self-criticality. I want to push those sensitivities to their full potential.
