When I am creating an etching, I feel like I am in a different world, another dimension which is a reflection of the world we live in. Maybe it's the mirror-like effect, where every line and tone is going to be printed the other way round, maybe it's the complicated chemical process and the surprising outcome with unexpected marks or maybe it's the danger and the magic of it all. I feel like working with this technique gives me the permission to reshape the reality and tell the story behind the magical mirror.
During the creative process every time I am repeatedly reminded to embrace the unexpected outcomes. I like to say that art teaches me to live. For me it is a safe getaway, a place to explore or just to be.
