Still life
The photographs, reflecting a moment in time of these organic and non-organic objects belong, in my view, to the world of representative realism. The conscious referencing with the Vanitas symbolic of the classical still life painting period from the 17th to the 19th century is therefore an inspirational groundwork for me. Though, it is important that I preserve the connections to the present time.

In my atelier I arrange still life – like a theatre stage – and construct a story. Animal skulls play a central part. These objects stand for the respect and admiration of me towards the creatures. They show the unmasked beauty of deterioration.

The composition is central to my work. The exact reproduction, without any compromise holds a fascination for me and creates an artistic challenge for my work.
