My work is both abstract and figurative. It is the shape I am after. That shape should be exciting and in harmony with the material it is made from. Sometimes I work from a form I have thought of before and tried out in clay, sometimes I search for the shape within the material itself. This is mostly the case with wood or pieces of stone. My inspiration often comes from the human body, both male and female. The shapes of a body can create beautiful tense planes and curves that evoke – sometimes erotic – emotions for me. Emotions which I try to capture in the sculpture and so communicate via the sculpture to its spectator. Many of my sculptures are polished or finished smoothly, emphasizing the interaction between shape and material. As much as possible I work naked, which gives me a sense of freedom and causes an intimite contact with the material I work on.
