My collages are sometimes dark and sometimes sexy, often exploring the divide between fantasy and reality in a playful, ironic, humorous and human way. Common motifs in my work are identity, the art of portraiture, eroticism and pop culture. I see my images as snapshots from a surreal movie whose viewers can then create their own narrative. In a fast paced world, I want the viewer to stand still just for a moment and get inspired. Instead of using the traditional analog process of cutting out and putting different elements together using scissors and glue, I recreate the same workflow digitally to have more freedom of changing the scene, but still preserving the manual look of the final work.
