Old family photos, as well as recent photos are a significant part of my work. Everyone has a family, a story and an album with photos from the past, but there are always new impressions and experiences in our lives which can add to these.
Usually one element of a photo inspires me and becomes the starting point of a piece. By digitally working with these photos, my goal is to alter the personal meaning of the image and to create a new vocabulary. Once the transferred image is on fabric or metal it becomes a new material which I can work with in an intuitive way. Also, working in multiples allows me to build new images which form an open space and carry a new meaning for the viewer.
