  • As opposed to the back of persons contemplating the nature of the Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich, I show “spectators” scrutinizing information distilled by the media. This is in fact what happened in the months of June, July, August, October, November and December 2013. The choice of newspapers is limited to sets available in Luxembourg and selection as annotations reflect subjective concerns. When I designed my work I had no idea of the catastrophic events that would occur during these six months of 2013. So the two paintings became a call against oblivion! The “real actors” are hidden, this is the function of the red curtain. In fact, who are they and what are the real issues?

  • The Codex Aureus Epternacensis is a gospel book created at the Benedictine Abbey of Echternach, Luxembourg, founded by an Northumbrian monk in the seventh century. It was purchased by Duke Ernest II, Sachsen-Cobourg in the wake of the French Revolution, and later, 1955 sold to the Germanicum Museum of Nürnberg, where it is currently on show. Being myself of Luxembourg nationality I made so bold as to re-appropriate the popular iconography of this magnificent book, in order to promote women's rights. Thus I made the Majestic Angel, and his scribes, the prophets Ezekiel and Daniel, displaying the Gospel of St Matthew, become the heralds of a more unexpected message, without being detrimental to the miniaturists' craft, their decorative inventiveness and their skilful assimilation of previous, Byzantine iconography. The scribes' bent position betrays their unshakeable faith in their toilsome craft.

  • The present exhibition gives me the opportunity of investigating the ideologies of power. This is why Christian ideology is being re-shaped in the dyptic "Gated Community", hence the predella informs against those slums spreading around large urban agglomerations. If the traditional retable points to those values that may hint at something beyond, I firmly settle down within the here and now, trying to establish a link with contemporary thought , giving up traditional metaphysics and thus any belief with an inherent idea of redemption to it. Life comes first, death only second, that is what counts, in the long run. Through my work I point out an evident truth: Money reigns supreme. "Magritte Reloaded" is an ironic appropriation of Magritte's painting "Golconda" and shows those finance virtuosi who have got hold of our world."Woman on cross" makes the visitor provide and draw his own interpretation and conclusion, the same goes for the second painting. With the series "The Different Portrait" I reconsider the art of the portrait, giving up a complete representation and relying on the rhetorical device of the "pars pro toto". Attitudes as well as accessories are being used, thereby allowing psychological analysis to fade away, thus pointing out forms of social behaviour.

With the nude I try to tackle a topic firmly established in art. I should like to firmly emphasize that I do not view the naked female form as an object to be desired or on exhibition. To me it is the expression of womanhood gratified, at peace with itself and the world. The signified in my work allows for classical motifs, such as the “Garden of Delights” or the “Pastoral”, to be either distorted or recomposed.
