My work comes from a spatial sensibility and deals with processes of change at the subtle limits of the Inside and Outside. Engaged with vital processes, transformation and growth, I let it play with format and scale, deconstructing, fragmenting and re-layering.
It becomes also site- time- specific. It crystallises mostly in fragile installations, sculptural works as immersive and fictional realities -opening room for participation; 1:1, interventions and performances live. It expands and compresses in abstract empirical paintings, collages, filmic works, conceptual art exceeding “medium”.
I juxtapose sound to visual where beyond the aesthetics I can explore an inner experience of musicality. I am interested in the dialectics of private and public spheres, inner and outer worlds and their osmotic boundaries.
I tackle themes that embrace language, communication, life, nature-artifice, perception in their physical and virtual levels. Within my work I attempt to emotionally provoke the audience while leaving an empty space for the imagination.
