In the monumental BATTLEFIELD you can perceive at first only the letters of the plastic protruding LOVE, which is the sweet pink color uniformly blended with. On closer inspection, you realize that the letters are made from countless toy soldiers and tanks. They stand in rows and are forced into subordinate formations attracted to the color as a standard sauce, so that the actors remain nameless, they deserve no more individuality. At the same time, the color of vulnerable human skin of the soldiers return to our flesh and blood. The pink color is caused by the mixture of red, which stands for blood, and white symbolizing the purity. In a subtle way the artwork brings to express that irresolvable opposites seemingly can arise from one another, that love can develop from a battlefield and a battlefield from love.
