I work with memory, how to trigger memory, my own and yours. I use mainly personal material from my own text, diaries, places I have lived. 

I´m interested in the physical results of my actions, of my presens, a registration of my feelings, movements and marks. Woodcut is a method I use. Cutting out the image in wood gives me the visual expression I´m looking for. 

The acutal cutting out is like making scars in the wood. To make to motif appear, I have to remove something. The absence becomes the motif, the space becomes the image.
