"Normal is overlooked. It is just so normal. That is triggering. In my work, I make the daily life remarkable. I show the extraordinary in contrast to the ordinary. Searching for a new specialty in the standard. In my work I exaggerate, get things out of context, add unusual, misfitting elements. I start with recognizable scenes, so the viewer can relate to it. From a normal picture, I build up to something new. It ends in surrealistic scenes."
