Starting point of my creative process is in most cases the landscape itself. Special situations, structures, or the history of a landscape trigger artistic ideas. Sometimes the materials found at a special place or which are important to understand the landscape are the source of ideas.
My art is most of the time of ephemeral character. Art pieces might stay only for hours, some days or month. Most of the time they don‘t have to be disassembled, nature takes over this part.
Collecting thousand of dry branches and assembling them to a sculpture - the working process is often very meditative. And it is in a way spectacular for observer/visitors of the place. Watching the sculpture grow, just from materials of the field of their daily experience.
I like to use rusty, softened iron wire. It helps to extend my possibilities and to express the artistic conception.
