The human experience is the most important element in my work. Regardless of the social, political, cultural and historical aspects that are often attached to what it means to be human, I’d rather make emphasis on humans themselves and their life from birth, through growth, to death.
The subjects in my work are often depicted being merged with their environment, layers and textures from the background blending in with the human form, as if blurring the lines of identity.
Surrounding objects and locations don’t usually have an important role in any of the art pieces. It’s a work absent of time, usually surrounded by an environment that transcends reality and enters imagination, inviting the viewer to make a contemplative pause and make their own interpretations and connections on human, mental, emotional levels and beyond.
It’s human awareness and universal truths that I strive for.
