Artist Statement

Personal and poetic, rhythmic and layered, my work merges the world of sound and vision - the internal with the external. It focuses on borderlines ... those mostly invisible boundaries that separate me from you, us from them, reality from fantasy, childhood from adulthood, life from death, us from the natural world. My installations are my attempt at immersing the viewer in my vision of the world. This is how I perceive reality and is my invitation to you to come see it through my eyes. The essence lies in the interaction between the viewer and the artwork, which is why all my installations are immersive and interactive. They are multi sensory experiences, that engage with sound/touch and light. Playful, they unapologetically appeal to our sense of wonder. My digital paintings are divided into series which might at first glance seem disparate but which all are anchored in the poetic use of color, the love of the natural world and the unmasking of the unseen. Reflections and shadows are two perennial subject matters of mine. They are secret doors to our own inner reality. They show us sides of the world, and of ourselves which we tend to ignore. The dual vision of the world created by reflections, seeing simultaneously what is in front and what is behind, what is above and what is below, symbolizes in my work the merging of both the inner and outer realities and is something I have been striving for in my art.
