Visualizing the synthesis of imagination of the crossing of poetry, dance, music and image,
Always the dialogue: a preference for nature, natural colors, the earthly, motion, life, the combination of different materials, and most of all for recycling: to retake the past both in history, politics, materials and the image into this moment and the future…..open-end.
With a sense for poetry and art history she translates mainly in conceptual 3-D art, never fixed on one material but rather combinations like glass and iron, wood, rubber, wool and gelatin. Thematic art inspired by the narrative tradition from the Bible and mythology and politics.
Experimental, research, minimalistic but manifesting monumentality.
