I create geometric collages, assemblages and sculptures with vintage book parts.
My work is a never-ending story where I play with deconstruction and reconstruction,
and changing dimensionality - often within one piece.
On the hunt for textured surfaces and faded colors I deconstruct discarded vintage
books. By means of décollage the element of chance becomes an integral part of
my process. While extending the margins of my compositions I build new space,
always conscious of maintaining balance and harmony within the work. Although my
work seems planned and calculated it evolves organically within a rule-based
system. The interplay of sizes, shapes and color leads me on a search for the perfect
placement of my salvaged and manipulated material. This pursuit becomes both
meditation and ritual.
