ARTIST STATEMENT 2015

My films and photographs explore a modern universe that is caught somewhere between reality and fiction: a place where human communication is often distorted, misunderstood and confused by the balance of beauty and evil.

I like to create an outrageous world filled with excess, humour and implausible reality; often rebelling against the very nature of its banality towards something primal and unsighted.

During the creative process of an image or a film, I enjoy adding elements of unplanned nature in order to intensify the power of the encrypted message within my work. To expose things that should not really be exposed, just like an impertinent and unruly child would do, that is what makes all the difference to me.

All photographs are scanned from hand printed silver gelatin prints.
