Artist Statement:

»My work engages with the translation between the digital and analog.

Throughout my working process I experiment with material, colour and technical devices, aiming to blur the borders between the digital and analog fields.  

Today‘s influence of  digital networks, surfaces and interfaces- created to access the variety of easy adoptable information- inspires me to create images which use the same technology in its appearance yet reinterpret the sense and meaning of a digital image through recreating the image using various digital and analog working methods.

I understand my computer as a brush and am constantly looking for ways and methods to use it in an intuitive way in oder to decrease the gap between both fields. I paint, scan, rework digitally, print, photograph it, re-print and use different sorts of colour, revisiting the image‘s structure.

Throughout the process the digital image looses its original identity and creates a tangible emotion. A sensual experience of patterns and surfaces is displayed on a previously digital-based structure.«
