My body of work explores the notions of desire, death and memory. These three points each have their own multi-layered profundity, and I’m interested in how they are intertwined with the social and cultural spaces in which I live – although I’m also concerned about the role of an artist as an observer in these spaces. The motivation for me is always evolving, from curiosities about socio-political cultural spaces to personal narratives, with cinema, pop culture, art history, mythology, and religion as reference points. And I enjoy the process of letting viewers decipher the many metaphors and symbols for themselves.
