‘All Art Derives From Play’ – a quote of Johan Huizinga (Homo Ludens, 1938), which I totally embrace and try to translate in my work as an artist, but also as a perspective in how we can look at art.
Since 2004 I have a practice as a visual artist. In this practice I play and examine inside the two-dimensional domain the way we perceive the world around us and how form and meaning are established. Parallel to this practice, I also design applied games.
