In our more and more confusing world, in which social control and security are hot items, IDENTITY and IDENTIFICATION are daily issues.
In my new works I confront myself with the more and more experienced need of self - identification ; who am I and what am I.
A psychological identity relates to self-image (one's mental model of oneself), self-esteem, and individuality.
Gender identity f.i. forms an important part of identity, as it dictates to a significant degree how one views oneself both as a person and in relation to other people, ideas and nature.

About the artist
My ideas and statements about ART:
I think that art gives us back to ourselves in a renewed state.
By paying attention to art for a moment, we tap into a source within ourselves and we gain access to the imagination.
Art offers us new perspectives, makes us think and activates our senses. Art gives us value so that we feel we can be different from what we tend to think.
She teaches us how we can free ourselves from our regular pattern, rise above ourselves and open ourselves to other people, to the world.
« Composing artworks for me almost is a philosophic question in transferring my thoughts into metaphorical representations. »
