Most of my artistic work is situational. I work mostly with light, - light touching, form and space. This has resulted in a number of «light installations» interior and exterior. I work mainly with site based ideas; content and character.
Materials are chosen according to the idea and in relation to the site.My choice of materials is unlimited;anything from traditional materials to building- or natural materials.
The light can be natural or a variety of artificial light.
The situations can be either small or large but always with one or another form of energy.My main focus is on relativity of space/form/light with a versatility.
Light and space relativity is common to all my works.
I am fascinated by light, yet not necessarily limited to the colour white whenever the situation requires something else.
