DeadWoods [Definitionare a magnificent example of a constantly changing matter slowly decomposing towards its complete decay. They are a  testimony of the transient nature of all phenomena. In the process of decomposing they leave a trail of a surprising variety of textures and shapes. I collect, preserve, process, interpret, assemble and expand these deadwoods into sculptures. 

 

In the act of sculpting I turn the eroded and transient into

a seemingly permanent image. It is a dialectical process that takes place between two opposing states of consciousness, a bitter awareness of ephemerality as the sole nature of all and a desire for permanence expressed in the act of sculpting.

​The attraction to DeadWoods is not only aesthetic but also a preoccupation with old age and ephemerality. In the work of sculpture I seemingly stop the process of disintegration and cling passionately to the stable and (seemingly) unchanging existence of the sculptures.

 

 

 

In the studio I am a child who enthusiastically builds a sand palace on the beach and believes wholeheartedly in the eternity of his kingdom. Sometimes, I am also a father who looks with a compassionate smile at his son playing in the sand, while aware of the true nature of reality.
