I work on projects that are situated on the edges of arts, design and architecture. The "architectural” is the link in all of my work and expresses itself in sculptures, photography and paintings. The tension is made by contrast and opposites in colour, form and material. The sculptures must be photogenic objects that intrigue and fascinate, as well as play with the rules of gravity and construction. They are sometimes functional. Vertical Landscape is a spatial drawing, an architectural line drawing made from a wooden construction that can be fixed on the wall like a painting.
