„The collage works of the artist are a powerful rebellion against the beauty of our time. A socially critical postulate. Through the combination of every day materials and impressions such as texts, photographs and drawings she creates – as Robert Rauschenberg once did – through parts of reality the proximity of the work of art to the real world. In a way, her images are advocates of humanity, of mindfulness, of the ideals of beauty, and of digital advances in the age of mass production and mass consumption.”
