The Leipzig-based artist, who came to art in a roundabout way and since then has been giving her works to the public as a convinced autodidact, wants to stimulate, excite.
By combining such contradictory materials as wood with brass, felt with lead, bones with velvet, polystyrene with tinplate ... she can cause very idiosyncratic and independent effects.
The life of their own, which develops these materials, is a great challenge not only to the artistic intuition, but also to the technical skills of the material artist. Her vision of an object must always be penetrated by the strong sensual and meaningful properties of the substances it uses.
Deviating from the trend towards disposable art, she relies on elaborate processing of her diverse materials.
Her works should be meaningful and sensual, tangible, powerful and complex as life.
