AT THE INTERSECTION BETWEEN MODEL, IMAGINATION AND MODIFICATION

 

Starting point of my artistic activity is found footage. My artistic work deals with acquirement of these images and their re-interpretation.  I try to open up images for the viewers and stimulate shifts of significance. The working process, for me, is an experience: I want to get rid from the model and the primary related imaginations and come to a new image instead!

 

During the working process I concentrate on the questions: Where does my imagination dock on these pictures? Which inner barriers open up in the process of engagement and which path leads to more freedom? Which scopes and development potentialities develop? Which momentums emerge and which new meanings can be derived? Dave BluBoy now and then performs as my avatar and embodies this involvement in the exhibition space.

 

Choosing my sources I am especially interested in captivating pictures and portraits of people posing for a viewer. I like refering to images of other artists´ works, integrate different styles or now and then use originals to overwork. Often my pictures develop from different ways to paint. Reflecting I consider references by which the new image interacts.
