Art as Relief

My Art is reflecting on individual experiences concerning everyone worldwide. Searching for peaceful parallel worlds- such as Dutch sandbanks or the untouched nature of the Amazon, I discovered both: my very own originality and those of other nationalities&religions; their respect of nature&each other. However, even here the surrounding isn't clean anymore. I am using a great variety of natural material, such as wood, sand, amber, mainly material which has been washed ashore-something which has been pushed away or lost. The creative quality is not only evident in paintings or graphics, also in sculptures&the installations concerning the refugees seeking Europe seawise or the social sculptures referring to communication in progress. Some works of art result of carefully looking at even apparently insignificant things like telephone cells or styrofoam BigMac boxes. Those have quite a story to tell not only about the material of Styrofoam. You need to see the connections between objects and their broader context within the lives of people who make and use them. Why do we find BigMac boxes on sidewalks and lawns and beaches?
