My fascination started when I walked into a local Asian Supermarket. Here I saw all those different packages with bright, illustrative colours that fascinated me.
The old, delicate, Chinese embroideries that where so time-consuming stand in stark contrast with the rapid mass productive China that we know. This contrast, in combination with my fascination for embroidery, inspired me to make these works.
My work plays with the definitions of the precious and the worthless, of garbage and art.
