My work consists chiefly of monumental steel sculptures. In contrast to the association evoked by the material, the sculptures are characterized by lightness and transparency. Interacting with their surroundings, these outdoor sculptures suggest unlimited space. As an artist I have been fascinated by the phenomenon of ‘boundaries’ during the past few years. These offer a permanent challenge for exploration and pushing back. The space within the boundary-lines has a different character. It fascinates me because it invites me to explore it, causing contradictory emotions of limitation and oppression on the one hand, and of safety and protection on the other hand. This evokes the question when do certainties become a compelling system ?

In the process of exploring and marking boundaries, sculptures involved in which a layered, often transparent, construction of maze and dish-shaped forms more or less camouflage the essence. The dimensions of the sculpture are determined by the dimensions of man. It is important that the limitations of space are experienced, despite the transparency. Consequently, I make my sculptures in such a way that one can walk around them as well as through them.

As I am interested in making the spectator take part , integration of the work of art into the urban surroundings is important. Therefore I prefer to place my sculptures outdoors where they can enter into a relationship with unlimited space, whereas indoors the theme is stressed by the limitation of the surrounding space.
