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 and paintings on paper.
