The series ‘Konstrukt’ utilizes layered compositions to represent imaginary materials and structures in various stages of (dis-)assembly. The transparency of the layers facilitates a greater comprehension of the constituent elements, and encourages speculation about the stability and permanence of the structures, hinting at the transience even of supposedly concrete and durable physical as well as social constructs.
Series ‘City Limits’
The ‘City Limits’ and ‘Konstrukt’ series are parallel in their evolution. While ‘Konstrukt’ is purely abstract from its first layer, ‘City Limits’ begins with research into photographs of cities in crisis, such as those affected by war, mistreatment of minorities, political and economic injustices, or negligence and their consequences.
Through the defamiliarisation of the images on the canvas, and with the addition of further layers and varying degrees of transparency, the paintings become increasingly abstract, while still retaining figurative elements. Ultimately, the works strive to extend beyond the initial photographs, exploring contemporary questions and connections.
