ARTIST STATEMENT  

“Piker je net, it komt doch oars” is a well- know Frisian proverb. It means as much as“Don’t worry, everything will change anyway”. A tile with this proverb was standing on my parent's mantelpiece. The fact that everything changes in life is an established one. It fascinates me as well worries me.  And in order to deal with this fear, I incorporate it into my work as an artist. Recurring themes are therefore decay, transience and loss. I hereby often draw from my own rural childhood as a starting point for my projects.
