About The Artwork

The idea behind this work is similar to the concept of constructing a knot out of two ropes of same length. There are numerous ways to bind the knot, however the necessary volume will approximately stay the same. There is some density between these figures who change bodyparts - similar to ends of a knot that is constructed and deconstructed. I wish that the viewer feels the density between the two independent parts that eventually have a shared momentum before being deconstructed and set into another position. I use woodcut as my preferred medium to transfer an aspect of monumentality into these works - the size is quite large. I also use normally just the colour black not to distract from the idea of one form itself as I'm not definitely interested in the study of the figures.

My works are inspired by a very personal perception of situations. I create live sized figures in monochrome colours to reduce myself to what counts and what is necessary. The line is the most important carrier of information and I use my cutting tools for the woodcuts the same way I would use a pencil. When talking about the practical background I stress that I am inspired by sculpturing and I compare woodcut the way I do it as THE printing technique which is closest to three-dimensional art. The subject matter starts from the idea of a knot, where two parts can be combined to a construct in endless ways. The area of the wood for that reason is mostly constant - I also reduce myself in this sense to a defined unit.
