Artist Statement

Currently my work focuses mainly on conceptual photography as well as sculpture. Since 2016 I have introduced different mediums such as casting, mould making, woodwork and ceramics into my practice. These techniques have facilitated my exploration of several issues regarding contemporary Fine Art practice and related cultural theories.

In my work I question the hierarchy of objects within the artistic process in an age of mass production and copies. I classify objects into groups in order to appreciate their characteristics and reflect upon their narratives. Therefore typology, repetition and the interconnections between object and subject play an important role in my practice. I am looking at material culture and the relationship between people and the objects that surround us.
