ABOUT

Working at the intersection of painting, sculpture, film and installation, my artistic aim is to externalize the imagination, constructing believable worlds with a life of their own. Borrowing visual elements from (folk-)religious iconography and layering them with elements from mainstream culture my work explores the intersections of different societies and faiths towards new beliefs of a syncretic nature. I sympathize with animistic philosophies such as Deep Ecology where Earth is regarded a living entity. Reviewing the history of visual media, I see it evolving towards a system of instantaneous transmission of living information.
