Art is a chance to learn how to live. It is the highest form of hope and the greatest rebellion imaginable. It helps us achieve stability and reconnect with our deepest truths. Art guides us in the fragile process of filtering perceptions, learning, un-learning and re-learning how to listen, look and see before we give birth to new realities. We allow ourselves to become who we are in a world ruled by concepts, definitions and interpretations.
The way I approach art is strongly influenced by my life as an expat and my experience as a business professional. I feel intuitively drawn to complexity and the opportunity to understand, deconstruct or transform it into new perspectives. Art is my playground for establishing connections between seemingly disparate subjects.
I typically work in series. My work gravitates around the concepts of defiance, identity, belonging and consciousness. It accommodates contrasts and dualities into harmonious yet provocative realities. It is an attempt at regaining a sense of freedom and wholeness by bringing together fragmented experiences. In a very real sense, I learn who I really am on the canvas.
