At a certain moment in our life a specific image representing an aspect from the non-physical world (for example in the shape of a certain symbol, a specific animal, a Goddess, an archetype) can attract our attention, because it contains a message important to our inner self. In some way this image touches us profoundly and feeds our hungry soul. By paying attention to these kind of images, (presenting themselves to us in such a way) we can activate these aspects in ourselves, for such images quite often represent our own latent qualities. For that reason they are able to inspire us and hand us new possibilities for living our life.
It was my aim to capture in matter the specific energy contained in these images, so it will enable the spectator to get directly in touch with this energy and with the message the image has to tell or offer us.
In order to bring these images to the world of matter through my artwork, I use a self developed free form of patchwork, which allows me to "paint" with fabric. This technique works well for my purpose, because it forces me to touch the essence.
In this way I my work serves as a permanent source of power, support and inspiration and as a memory of the healing message.
