...Motives in my works are themes like power vs. lack of power, male-female relations, guilt vs. innocence. I produce series of works consisting of different layers like politics and fairy tales; I let these layers connect with one another in order to create a completely new story. This story tells my vision on life and the world.


The title of the series of drawings which shows all different parts of my latest work is 'And the winner is.....'. 'Fighting Temptation' shows an image of dictators and sexy pin-ups, 'And the winner is.....'is going back to the installation of 'The Museum of Conflict'. 'Pin-up World' is showing the fantasy character of Barabarella who has to save the world from evil. The images all refer to the story of the good and the bad in reality and fantasy. The lines in black or white comes together in the different grades of grey in the backgrounds. Some images are layered and some are blown up. The images together tell a new story.
