I am an interdisciplinary artist based in Ghent, Belgium with a background in interior and graphic design. Next to my own studio, I am a teacher at LUCA School of Arts, Ghent. Besides freelance assignments for brands, artists and art platforms for several years, I started my artistic practice in 2020.
For the collages, I collect random fragments from old books, envelopes, archives, files that I sort by colour, age, patina, shape. After the collages have acquired their definitive form, I photograph them in detail and print them out in large format. Here, I look for new compositions within the original collage.
In photography, I strive for photos that have a graphic quality. I look for compositions, juxtapositions and architectural spatial qualities. I am obsessed with light and how images can change when you use them in sequences.
My background in interior and graphic design gave me the language I needed to use these approaches.
