about/biography

 

My work is expressed through various visual art mediums; namely, textile work, drawing and painting.

In my work I examine how my inner self (experiences, memories, feelings) relates to the world, therefore, touching not only on personal issues but sociopolitical ones too. The content often touches upon feminist and intersectionality theory, exploring the woman’s body and her sexuality: both the ideas and conceptions but also the body as pure form.

While the body has always played a central role in my work, recently it has developed towards a more abstract figurative style where bodies, body parts, objects and patterns are puzzled together into collages allowing a different story to be told, one that fuses the conceptual and physical more explicitly and fluently.

My textile work has its foundation in clothing design and I quickly started to attempt mixing traditional, experimental and innovative pattern making techniques to the design of garments, with a philosophy that accepts fashion as a form of art.

In recent years however, I have developed an inner conflict regarding the fashion and clothing industry. This has caused me to push my textile creations into a more abstract direction where I study textile materials in different relations to the body other than a wearable piece of clothing, exploring what happens if I instead of creating for the body, include the body in my work.
