The works from the series Human Image juxtaposes details from Giotto’s frescoes of the Capella Scrovegni with contemporary images from advertising, science and everyday life.
The symbol of the aureole is often placed as an integral detail or across all formats on the works, which are usually produced as individual pieces using the silk-screen printing process. In these works, the aureole takes on the meaning of a placeholder that raises questions about the current position of man and his vitality.

Dignity of Man is a tribute to a young man who, at the age of 24, in 1486/87, wanted to invite scholars from European universities to discuss human freedom: Pico della Mirandola (1463 – 1494. His opening speech “Oration on the Dignity of Man” was never given by him, but today it is one of the most famous texts of the Renaissance.

…And the terms that appear here are substitutes – “what ever form”, “decision”, “what ever place”… for that which opposes us as indeterminacy in principle, which gains meaning only through the use, i.e. the development of a history of becoming, and how we deal with it. On its own, “what ever form” or “decision” or “heaven” or “from their mothers womb” is completely meaningless. Only when you work with it, it gains a kind of evolutionary dignity. It becomes becoming – and when it becomes becoming, it has the decisive power to concentrate on ourselves.
