WHAT IS REAL? (2021)
Through my work I developed a visual language that makes sense to me. I never shy away from the difficult things in life, but always need to search for a slither of hope in order not to become entirely consumed by despair because life will always present us with polarities, and we have to experience both. Sometimes even the most challenging thing has the potential to offer us an incredible gift. First,however, we have to be willing to see it.
During doing my work prcess, I'm always eager to see how one image can evolve into another one. I only recently explored the use of digital medium as an extra tol for expression. It is an exciting process that often takes me on exciting journeys of discovery. Creating a message is usually exciting because I have to find the perfect balance between hat will invoke emotion in my viewer and make them think about the work long after they've studied it. I prefer to work with accidental elements that occur when I superimpose images. It forces me to adjust and find new potential in what is in front of me. I love the challenge the process presents to me because it pushes me out of my own comfort zone. It's also the perfect analogue to my personal life. I had to reinvent myself numerous times during my lifetime so this creative method works very well for me.
