Artist Statement

Art is a spiritual mean to heal, transform and inspire. I believe in the power of narrative, memory, atmosphere and poetry. And the possibility to navigate energy (language, thought, space, beings, things ...) to empower oneself and others. We are inspired by nature, the body, history, mythology, indigenous knowledge and divers healing methods. I believe that there is a possibility in art to unfold the soul to nourish visions of connection, emancipation and togetherness.

About our work: The inner dimensions and their structures allow compositions, only visible through the medium used. Through these acts, we realized how the forms – with each material and its peculiarities - flow and fuse together, creating a relationship between all things. The pivot of my artistic practice is the way I work and the working process. The manual and intuitive handling with the material, may it be painted on canvas, ink on paper, clay or analog 16mm film, is very important to me. It‘s like letting yourself be guided by an inner rhythm. We want to be able to quickly enroll in a material. Immediacy plays a major role. In the process, methods then arise that are repeated or that I consciously changed. The moment always determines the expression – one gesture causes the next one – note follows on note – one requires the other – this is how the story builds up. So the process is the story of creating images, shapes and forms. The work itself is storage medium of this process; archives of informatio – history to memory.
