Portrait

“my approach of expanded drawing makes use of material and abstraction in order to discuss political contents and action strategies. Within this approach, I intend to not imitate or even establish any line-up ideology but to pass moments of decision on to the viewer. It is the “not-yet” of intermediate states and instability that I address: be it alternating concepts of value within society, the subjectivity of individual perception, or inter-subjective communication.”
