In re MONTAGE the artist asks ‘Is there a transformative energy in destruction? Do things have to break down before something new can occur?'
'One of my art practices from 2008 until 2012 has been mostly executed at home, drawings images from different resources: National Geographic, books, personal photographs... on recycle boards. And as an image maker, they will get destroyed and transformed to create one artwork.’

'This art series is in two parts and explores natural identity using two modes of expression: hair sewing and drawing. The nurture/nature debate is addressed in the first half of this series with the use of hair. The 2nd half of the series uses found natural matter and extends its aesthetic characteristic through an evolutionary drawing principle. Techniques within the works may lead down a blind alley in the way an evolutionary tree 'stumps' when the environmental demand surpasses innate abilities. While escaping into the drawing, various evolutionary avenues will become evident.'
