“I have attempted to leave some of this manifest in my works whilst simultaneously staging another instance of touch or only-just-having-touched. I used this double-movement of implicit and explicit meaning-making to see how distance (pointing away, figurative form, obscuring materials) and touch (pointing to oneself and to oneself having come into being) work together, if they do. What is being communicated in the end? What does the human eye discard? I am not deliberately trying to induce any specific feelings or reactions in people who may view my work: I have made ”surfacing” with great curiosity. Having said this I must however add: if my sculptures arouse the desire to touch in the viewer, it means the viewer has been touched first —from a distance — and in these cases I have succeeded.”
