"In my art practice I explore the interrelationship between reality and illusion and the phenomenon of perception and projection — catching the elusive moments and capturing emptiness inside or outside. I zoom into and investigate the awkwardness of human behaviour, the complexities of our current techno-cultural landscape and the sense of isolation we’re in. How our identities distort under the weight of insta-happy life, how we present ourselves to the world and struggle to fit in. My images are often physical and sensual, body reactions are mirrors of human states — sometimes broken and exhausted or dissoluted, almost liquid.
All my works operate within two extremes — complete loneliness and neurotic fiesta. I juggle between these states, which to me are two sides of the same coin."
