bio
20190124072107-me

The daily images of objects, people, events are fused into surreal world of uncommon alliances.
Abstractions or figurative approaches, traditional technique or new media and materials are all intertwined to deliver a clear visual impulse of thought or sentiment.
Creating a space where time looses its chronology, view warps into a distorted perspectives, images collapse and deteriorate revealing layers of hidden images underneath. Where one group of objects masques another.
Collapsed into new structures and unexpected unions, they give an unpredictable and strong and clear message.
The closer you look - the more you find; as if being drawn into another reality.
