Through the medium of fiber art Fern manifests her psyche and satirical view of her
surroundings, simultaneously exploring the correlation between these two realms. She uses her work to express our Zeitgeist filled with spam and cyber sex, substance abuse and excess, toxic relationships and feminine


divinity. In a naive style, a childlike mix of pop- and outsider art, Fern processes her life experiences and depicts personal anecdotes in the form of tapestry. Resembling a painting but textured soft like a carpet, her work is a homogeneous mix of fine art and handicraft. Fern‘s most recent work focuses on the hardships of self-set boundaries towards the people loved most. Not really aware of the borders between good and evil, medication and addiction. Fern explores her personal and digital realities and engages with them through carpet tufting, punching and textile applique. She appreciates the fast and passionate work these techniques allow her to do. They enable her to apply lines, structures and forms intuitively, spontaneously and completely freely.
