"In my sculptures and paintings, the human being is the “Leitmotiv.” In almost every work of art, I almost intuitively sketch a human figure as a basis that I then position in relationship with the environment. In my latest series of work, I want to design the human being in relationship with nature and environment. Nature is vital for us humans. We experience the world around us through our senses and we are virtually air and water. I find this fascinating: it makes the human vulnerable. Actually vulnerability is also an important theme to me."
