“Always go too far, because that’s where you’ll find the truth”
― Albert Camus
It is important to me as an artist and human to expand and grow in my life and how I see. I respect tradition, film and old processes. I’m intrigued by anything new and progressive and embrace it. I explore new ideas, concepts, mediums and anything that is inspiring, exciting or makes me uncomfortable.
Many motifs recur in different representations and constructs in my work. Drifting from real to an idealized world or fractured daydream in which images defy prior notions, turning the lens or holding a mirror on the viewer. My work has evolved through various ideas, concepts and expression- yet there is a common thread that binds consistently throughout every series.
