The work is a conscious engagement with my own negative thoughts and mood swings by depicting the dark aspects of my psyche. It takes the viewer into a hellish place, where perception forms and dissolves different ideas of space, where the senses intertwine and where we try to close the gaps in our perception with our (image-) language.
In the banally illustrated world, hell is within me. It leaves me alone, has no end, makes no sense. It towers in front of me like a high mountain and lets me fall deep into a hole. In the work, the lines between what is real and what is not real are blurred. It is reminiscent of the field research of one's own suppressed desires, where dark thoughts turn into a gloomy world. The work is deeply rooted in my emotions. The motives also feel pessimistic; They chase each other, spit fire, play with mud.
The intention of my work is to maximize the magical view of some of our fundamental thoughts to an extreme level. The illustrations are surreal, childlike, honest. They are inspired by moments of intense ups and downs. There are moments of planning and coincidence, memory and forgetting, truth and lies.
