As a visual artist, I create alternative realities through photography, film, and design. By using my intuition I can create visuals that break with the rules of space and time, and that melts a diversity of styles together.
Creating visuals gives me the ability to stimulate the viewer to think about certain issues they would normally not think about and appeal to the imagination and subconsciousness of the mind. With my visuals I want the viewer to feel like they are observing another dimension and show them my perception of reality.
Craftsmanship is essential for me as a visual artist. Creating the props, set design, and costumes are the most time consuming and essential part of my practice. By creating everything in my studio, I allow myself to reflect during the process of visualization.
By being part of the LGBTQIA + community I do not conform to the heteronormative cisgender ideal image, this influences me consciously and unconsciously. Many of my projects, therefore are connected with the LGBTQIA + community and reflect on the institutionalized heteronormative norm. I see my visuals as a counter-movement and reaction to heteronormativity and public norms.
In the end, I will use lens-based media to capture everything I created earlier in my studio.
Most of my inspiration is drawn from myths, theories, and social-political issues. The visuals I create have an aesthetic and styled feel which can be used for artistic and commercial purposes.
