Artist Statement: 

My purpose in art is to be a true creator – a combinator of ideas, an experimantator of senses, a challenger of status quo.

 

My work is about the immersive feeling of BEING itself. My problem is the perception -transporting the participant into some other space by overwhelming one’s senses.

Thus, I have many different approaches to my work, but it seems they all deal with the HUMAN condition. That state where we are right NOW and (subsequently) finding alternatives to it.
