# Artist Statement

In my pictures I deal with the artistic expression of human sexuality. It can focus on faces, bodies, partners or individuals. The erotic context is sometimes directly recognizable, sometimes not.

I mainly refer to sequences from pornographic films that have emerged from the feminist “good porn” and “sex-positive” movement. I’m looking for emotional, human, intimate, erotic and also provocative moments.

  • My art is pornographic
  • My art is feminist
  • My art is sex-positive
  • My art is kinky
  • My art is political
  • My art is erotic
  • My art is diverse
  • My art is human
  • My art is provocative
  • My art is tolerant
  • My art is polarizing
  • My art is intimate
  • My art is personal
  • My art is wrong
  • My art is right
  • My art is what I see
  • My art is what YOU see
