I am constantly amazed by the world around me, and my work is a reflection of my curiosity and wonder. Through observation and contemplation, I explore a range of subjects that intrigue me, from perception and science to the nature of the mind, space, and time. My goal is to translate these questions and ideas into visual expressions that offer a unique perspective on the world and create meaning in our society.
Light and shadow, color, and composition are the building blocks for me of my visual language. I work across a range of mediums, including light, painting, video, photography, sculpture, text, installation, and performance, to push the boundaries of traditional art forms and create immersive, multisensory experiences. I am acutely aware of the impact that our society’s reliance on fossil fuels and colonialism has on the planet. In my work, I strive to be mindful of the materials and processes I use, seeking out eco-friendly and sustainable options whenever possible.
Driven by the idea that art has the power to challenge our assumptions and transform our understanding of ourselves and the world, my goal is to inspire a greater appreciation for the natural world and encourage a more responsible and conscious relationship with the environment. As I create, I strive to remember that the most essential thing is simply to breathe, to be present in the moment, and to approach each work with a sense of openness, curiosity, and wonder.
