Made of stars

Wienna Insurance Group Award  2012

Portraying myself falling in the universe is an expression of the need for relief from the social, political and cultural restrictions. I refer to the fact that we came from the same chemical elements as the stars.
My figures may be everyone’s else, a microcosm in the macrocosm, a unit of infinite space. The light that emanates through drawing, highlights the same material of which we are made.
Are we our narrow belief system or are we all made of stars, the stars themselves?
