Statement

As an visual artist, social scientist & facilitator for emotional learning my underlying objectives are to trigger emotions, emotional learning and emotional intelligence through JOY.
 
JOY – that creates contact in between human beings.
JOY – as an subversive emotion to face the growing challenges in our society.
JOY – disarms seriousness.
JOY – opens eyes, ears & the heart  
JOY - as main trigger of education
JOY – that enables potential development.
 

 

Projects

I appreciate to collaborate as well with artist, scientists or interested & curious people who want to participate in a project.

2016/ 2017  Fragmenta 

The center of my artistic research were experiences and relations between humans in modern cities. The city as steadily transforming unity is like a big container of memories. The daily job of the construction workers is a symbol for the transformation process of a city. That is the reason why I collected worn-out building boards and used them as surface of an artwork. 
The work has been shown in January 2017 at the gallery "Beim Engel", Luxembourg-City.

Blind seers - ongoing project

The artistic research that started in 2017 visualizes the emotional vibration triggered by an unusual setting in which the participant draws. The photographed and revised drawing reflects the emotional event that happens at the interface between conviction, curiosity and uncertainty. 

2018/19  Contributing to the "Subjective Atlas of Luxembourg" of Annelys de Vet

I'm glad to participate in Annelys de Vets' project "Subjective Atlas of Luxembourg". My contribution consists in reflecting the everyday life of children between 3-12 years that visit day care centers. Please find the drawings of my contribution in the portfolio.

VISUAL ART

As visual artist I reflect my perception of human and non-human natures as well as emotional landscapes in my paintings and drawings. I'm interested in residencies of other platforms for art professionals to exchange and discuss point of views concerning art.
