My work aspires toward a critical view of western society, its predicaments and dead ends, as well as human experience in it. Recuring areas of interest are power, spectacle, loss of meaning and alienation. I also take inspiration from the current global political agenda. I try to find ways to bring forth a subject alienated, a subject not simply passive receiver of their facticity, but also the perpetuator of the conditions of their unfreedom.

These interests often take form in the work by focusing on an individual’s experience, and also through a misinterpretation of the reasons for their condition (for example misinterpreting social maladies for psychological). To make the aspect of misinterpretation shine I use humor and irony, which also aim to employ a critique that has a self-critical edge, aware of its shortcomings. This is especially important, in my opinion, for sustaining critique today, and for contemporary art in general.
