In her paintings the human being is reflected in animals - to show their original and shared nature. It is a quest where boundaries of existence are explored. Her work shows a tension that lies in feeling the symbolism of a literal interweaving of human, animal and the earth. With the result that these interweaving’s turn fixed relations upside down. Her work shows many layers: working from the calibrated master-servant relation towards the fear for an encounter.
There is an in between area, which simultaneously portrays a desire for and a distance from the origin and the removal of the paradox of the harsh and the beautiful nature of the animal.
