I am a drawing artist working with experimental techniques, animation and video. I have a background in classical animation as animator and director, and I also teach and supervise in animation and art. Working with drawings for a long time has made me start exploring the drawing practice in ways other than the practical. How it is connected to thinking. What potential it has to create or expose power relations. How it can be used for either concealing or revealing an inside.
My works are experiments in drawing and animation that unfold during the process, like a continuous sketching. The attempts are often based in a technical question that approaches a more profound, philosophical one.
Can I make something out of nothing? What happens if I keep everything I was going to cut away, and cut away everything I was going to keep? Can I make a film without visual descriptions? Can moving image be still? What stories can be told without language?
I like working with paper, paint, wood or found objects, combined with digital techniques like photo, video and sound recordings.
