My objects tell multisensory stories on scents. These olfactive stories are told by fragrances and objects, mostly created in ceramic. The fragrances used in the objects are originating from natural essential oils. Essential oils are destilled from plants. Sometimes I use audio as well.
The inspiraton for my olfactive stories comes from a 'cross-reference' of historical and traditional plant use, plant myths, botanical facts, modern properties and experiences of users of essential oils. The artistic search for symbols or an archetypical expression of this is evident. In this way each object becomes a visual and olfactory metaphor of psychodynamic processes of the fragrance.
Fragrances are able to connect to our emotions. Doing so, it can affect
undiscovered or forgotten layers from the psyche. Symbols have a simular effect. I would like to invite you, by opening all your senses, to experience my art and scent objects in your personal and perhaps universal way.
