My work reflects my fascination with play, improvisation, small objects and close-up details and explores the crossover between figurative and abstract elements. I am especially interested in exploring the relationship between three-dimensional objects and photography. Using photographs of my own small-scale sculptures and of found objects as a starting point, I investigate how materials, shapes, structures, texture, colour, light and shadow can be digitally manipulated to create images that are suggestive rather than descriptive. I treat light, darkness and shadow as malleable material for shaping photographic images, much like a sculptor uses clay to mould and develop forms and objects. This image is part of a sequence loosely inspired by Hans My Hedgehog, a fairytale by the Brothers Grimm that has fascinated me for a long time. A fairytale provides only the framework of a story and it is up to the reader to fill in the details. Hans – part human, part hedgehog – is an outsider. For this sequence I have imagined him spending his lonely childhood dreaming of a future in which he finally finds love and affection and has got a family on his own.
