“Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.”
I often wonder what makes me recognize images of me as “myself”. A photograph is a bidimensional representation of a very narrow slice of time, taken from a single point of view, yet I don’t seem to have a problem with saying “this is me”, when I see one.
My work aims to explore identity, the boundaries between what’s real and what’s imagined and the way memory changes shapes over time.
I am interested in those moments where the traditional relationship between the self and the world around it becomes undone and is replaced with a new definition of who we actually are, or might be.
I consider myself a mixed-media artist and my techniques include photography, illustration, collage and sculptural elements. The techniques utilized in my work are derived from a playful curiosity and a direct interaction with the object rather than a virtual modification of the image. I’m fascinated with the fragmentation and degradation of the image and the concept of creating through physical destruction.
