It has always been important to me as an artist in the field of lettering to show script in its purest forms. In an age dominated by the computer, a machine that quite frequently distorts script and produces caricatures, I feel a strong obligation to the aesthetic aspects of a cultural asset with a long standing tradition. I feel that classical forms deserve our deepest respect. My work focuses primarily on reaching a high quality both in regard to static as well as dynamic expression.
I am also strongly interested in giving language a shape that represents its original content in an adequate and modern form. The fascination I have with rhythm that is such an important aspect of writing done by hand has lead me to design my work close to scriptorial forms. Even though I prefer an expressive and spontaneous approach to lettering, this art form should nevertheless still be accessible to critique and not dissolve in a jungle of shapes. We already have plenty of those and we should not increase their number by adding calligraphic grimaces.
