In My Dreams, Spoon and I...

Porcelain, silver and branch

70 x 140 x 180 cm


In my work I create dreamy objects that conjure fanciful experiences. I wish for the observer to enter my imaginary world where my work has grown and seems to continue growing. This world becomes the environment where my objects morph, transform and convert the everyday into a fantasy. I imagine my objects desiring to become alive and mutate into other forms with other functions. The work arises from an imaginary dreamscape that turns the everyday function of familiar objects upside down.
