About this piece:

The fleeting quality of time also intrigues me. The Ephemeral and Caption series start with a number of drawings made with flour to signify the transient nature of movement. These drawings are very fragile and unstable and are swept away with a brush once photographed. A few of the images are digitally overlaid and create the black and white and hand coloured Caption prints and sepia prints in the Dance of Life. Similarly, in the Ephemeral mix media paintings, these digital images are overlaid, printed out in sections, transferred onto paper and painted. This long process and layering of the different techniques, in a way also preserves those ephemeral moments.

My work explores the different ideas we have about the notion of time, how we perceive it, the possibility of time travel and ways of preserving memories.  

The materials I use to make sculptures, play a significant role in my work as they bring back memories of my earlier, often childhood experiences. Often collected or found objects are preserved in wax, latex, gypsum plaster or paint, after they were constructed and shaped into objects.  The sculptures frequently resemble vessels, empty carriers that could have witnessed a development of life of some sort. While planning and designing the sculptures, I also allow for a natural, intuitive process to happen and allow the materials to determine the shape of the object. They have connections to nature although shaped into unexpected forms, where structure as well as the surface has its importance.  

My paintings, prints and drawings have basis in the concept of time perception, memory and fleeting qualities of movement but also often document the development of the sculptures.
