My practice is comprised of a wide variety of languages and processes which coalesce in mixed media installations of sculptures and paintings. In these, fragmented objects and images are juxtaposed and woven into capricious web of encounters and discontinuities. Hinting at the eclecticism and inherent contradictions of the early modern curio collections, I aim to recreate such spaces of confluence between nature and artifice, knowledge and superstition, the personal and the universal language, the familiar and the exotic.
In my paintings, I try to distance myself from the figuration historically tied to the medium, pursuing eloquence and spontaneity through a fundamentally material interpretation of the pictorial image. The use of paint, as well as the choice of employed materials, show a keener interest in their corporeality than in those more 'enlightened' functions of representation and communication. In a way, this physical condition impregnates the work with a certain aura, and elevates the unconscious gesture and the impromptu folly into the plane of contemplation, blurring the boundary between intentionality and play.
