Statement

I´m working with textiles for many years and I´m stitching by hand exclusively.
I´m interested in the connection between thread and human: Mythologically, thread is connected to human existence. Its length and quality are metaphors for the duration and character of our lives"...hanging by a thread..."
So I take my ideas from special conditions of textiles, such as softness, flexibility, fragility. This focus on "material as matter" results in forms. which cannot be projected exactly in advance.
My working process is very simple: I´m stitching white cotton thread onto transparent black silk or cotton fabrics.


From the tensions between the multiple thread layers result deformations: the work itself finds its final form through the combination of control and chance.
