One of my principle interests is incorporating craftsmanship into contemporary conversation. Exploring personal and artistic truth is a major theme in my work.
For my stamp works and projects, I attempts to locate a portrait of a person by visually translating dialogue between myself and an interviewee, which results in a unique drawing that is then translated into a stamp. The outcome of the stamp ‘portrait’ resembles a tiny and unique world, in which the person in question lives and operates according to his or her own processes and laws. I also organizes many pop-up events.
