Description

In folk art paper cut-outs usually refer to a specific custom, profession or nationality. The cut-out paper figures in my work are hybrids that would rather escape such a clear categorization. Assembled out of linocuts, ornament- and plant motifs, their heritage is ambiguous and multifaceted.
