Artist Statement

My initial work is an exploration of the gaze when it is directed towards the unconscious and its bifurcations.  I am profoundly interested in the fragmentation of the being when facing the impossible, oblivion, the loss of an ideal, of a beloved person or meaning.  I address the suspicion of the non-existence of a unified identity of the individual.  In my artistic process, I try to create images around the fragility of the human being, fighting to maintain an emotional firmness.  Trying to understand the relationship between the present and the past.  Recognizing the small truths that constitute life.

In my recent work, I explore the crossing of one culture by another and involve the combinations, the omissions and the fading away of a culture.
