In my series "Circus Soul" I confront the meeting between east and west, child and adult, city and nature. Fictional characters show up in dreamlike landscapes. Toys from the flee market start creating a parallel reality at my work table. The predators and their pray stop at the last minute to have a civilized conversation.The forgotten toys and superheroes meet at the cities hidden corners. They have some important messages to share. My work present spaces of momentary harmony, where the opposite forces try to reach a balance in a world filled with chaos.
