As an artist I feel it is my responsibility to reflect on perceptions of identities, as it has been conceived in the past, the present, and potentially the future.

 

Over the years I’ve learned to challenge the programmed cultural norms.

 

My projects show the results of my research and demonstrate my technical variety, symbolism, ironic to poetic. Predominantly I work with fine art, video art, film, installations and sculpting.
