I’m very unorthodox, both in my life and my work. I never did what artists are ‘supposed to do’: I don’t follow the market, I don’t have a signature style. Instead I’m project-process-oriented.
My work has never been linear, consistent or programmatic. I didn’t reject the concept of being a signature artist, I’m just not that kind of an artist.
I’m not a career artist in the sense of finding a concept or style, being recognized for it, and go on repeating it. It’s the easiest way to make a career. I searched for a different path.
