Biography

I have always been interested in how we perceive our existence.This position on the threshold is never absolute, never static. Elasticity. As I am never still, so has my artistic approach always been caught in reconstructing, reframing, decomposing. An artwork becomes an endless endeavor in search of stability. It exists in a vacuum, in a vast multiplicity of perception and experience; simultaneously inside and outside. Intimacy and vastness.

It is a critical point, a membrane, a window.

Curiosity and observation often leads me to diverse body of work, fundamentally connected to memory, (inhabited) space and time phenomena. How to frame this subject’s correlations has been a driving force for my artistic practice. Fragility, juxtaposition, displacement and architectural connotations are common to be found in the overall creative process: mapping.
