The elements of everything.

All things are made of little things, little shapes put together to become something else. This transformation of elements into a new form motivates me as an artist. The possiblities are infinite.

In my work I use simple 3D paper shapes and order them in a repetitive manner, so these shapes become part of a network of papers pieces, giving these shapes a totally new dimension.

In nature, which is my primary inspiration, this process can be clearly seen. Like for instance in the leaves of a tree or the scales of a fish.

My intention however is not to copy nature, but to make a more digitalized version of it. To do that textures, patterns and colours are all I need.

Just like in nature, my work is never exactly the same. The medium I use is paper, which I cut, colour and fold by hand, so the shapes and colours all end up a bit different and, when put together, the outcome still has an organic feel to it.

Whith my work I try to stimulate people to look at it from up close, from further away and from different angles, as each viewpoint reveals different colours and shapes.
