Without you even noticing, your new car turns into a used car. Through language and imagery, I search for a grip on everything that is continually changing. On the one side, my work is romantic and poetic, while on the other I show what’s happening in a sober and lightly absurdist way. My works are often fragmented; a bird ascends stairs, a conversation is drowned out by airplanes flying by. These fragments seem to be clues to a larger story. These apparent stories are sometimes made up and sometimes autobiographical and influenced by the storytelling power of Western movies. I play with fact and fiction and I attempt to break the rules of reality.
