I create multimedia installations where sculpture, video projection, sound, photography, and refracted light echo each other within poetic and theatrical environments. Personal stories and memories intersect with events that affect us collectively, and are being transformed into new imagery, in order to visually translate intangible aspects of human experience.
My process of creation is based on transformation, and my work develops in an empirical way where one thing leads to another: an idea, a gesture, synchronicity, or an unexpected relationship between elements dictates what follows. Within that framework, the individual explorations in my artwork change over time and the vehicle I create to carry those ideas takes whatever form or symbol the ideas demand. The surrealist model of the “exquisite corpse” is a reference, although strong links in form and in content are binding the different elements together within an installation format.
For the past recent years I have explored issues related to existing in a state of perpetual personal redefinition and reinvention that occurs when living in an era of an unsettling political, social, ecological and economical climate. My present work reflects more specifically the world divide over different beliefs and values, while exploring how creativity can be a powerful tool to maintain a stable and coherent sense of identity.
