The Medal

"Here you really touch the lines and you are able to use an additional sense next to sight to fully experience the work."

The Artist

“I am trying to give every single line, each stroke enough space, not to have the focus solely on the overall composition. As if you would regard a crowd of people not only as one body, but to consider each individual with due attention. Activating an alertness in the viewer. That means my work has two dimensions; the motive and compositional based one, but also a structure that can only be experienced when viewed close up, or through sensitive fingertips.”
