Built with Berta.me

  1. My work originates from an emotional concept in which personal subjects acquire a monumental value. Intuitively I search for those intimate moments where glances wander and empty hands are resting. It is mainly the small, almost meaningless, gestures or happenings which fascinate me. Like my mother who comes home tired from her work, and for a moment she looks like she is carrying the weight of the whole world on her shoulders. Or my dog passing away, which makes me very sad personally, but what is of course only a small death. 
    I alter those small moments into images of a mystical nature wherein the intimate value of the unremarkable is kept and cherished.

    I live and work in Deventer (2019)
