About

My approach towards fine art comes from an ever-since contrasting interest in art, science & humanistics and a consequent interdisciplinary background. I aim to make space for both "languages" and people to communicate contemporary areas of social crisis, climate crisis and sustainability crisis. Most of the projects are therefore a limbo for all, an interdisciplinary overlap, merging fields of art and science. Meaning also, feel welcome to reach out! 

With scientific background in chemistry, I am a researcher experienced in a wide range of analytical methods, organic synthesis, circular economy, recycling and sustainability themes. Drawing, three-dimensional installations and non-material formats are the most often used mediums. The core streams of my work are influenced by natural forces, sounds, physicochemical processes and also cognition. Burning wood is a substantial process in my practice, where I collect and further use residual charcoals and ashes. 

This approach has its origin in firewalk practices and its impermanent/transformative qualities in the environment. Energy processes are at the core of all the biochemical processess in the world around us. My reflections also embrace the value of geological structures and non-renewable resources beyond their use as an industrial resource. This addresses the global social problem by tapping into the very actual climate situation and corresponding connection/disconnection to the natural environment. But also the following, more individual, resulting relation between surroundings and mental processes. It can be therefore perceived as a research of the nuances in balancing "creative - destructive" forces in nature, that translates to the balance of "connection - detachment" from a psychological perspective.
