Sandra creates symbolic and tactile sculptures which are her way of illustrating the invisible and unpredictable character of Multiple Sclerosis – a chronic condition that affects the nervous system she has been diagnosed with in her late twenties.
Her current work highlights the daily challenges that come with this illness. Sandra constantly explores the cycle between physical and emotional symptoms, her anticipation of time and the effects that creative processes have on her wellbeing. This viewpoint greatly nurtures her inspiration and challenges Sandra to further develop her work.
Concrete is the main medium for the intuitive forms she produces. The heaviness, versatility and unpredictable nature of the material suitably mirror Sandra's experiences from living with the illness. Furthermore, Sandra processes her deep interest in the direct impact on the central nervous system. Along with sculpting and wire work, she likes using drawing and animation to convey more complex narratives.
