These iron sculptures are created by what I call ‘intuitive welding’. They are inspired by patterns and phenomena of growing and splitting.
I am fascinated by the different types of ramifications found in everyday life. For example, in the splitting of tree branches, in bodily systems like veins, or in humanbuilt systems like roads.
The almost patternlike elements capture the rhythm of some kind of growing organism.
Although I work with a solid material, I try to give the sculptures a light and playful character to suggest the feeling of threedimensional drawings, that interact with the drawings on paper.
