ARTIST STATEMENT

Through personal and material exploration, my work identifies issues of space and reality, and how illusion can change these perceptions. Mirrors have become an obsession, and continuously inspire my concepts and compositions. Like our dreams, the reflective surface of the mirror shows us a space that we can see and understand, but which is not physically attainable. This is a probing thought that has greatly influenced my way of thinking and has introduced different processes into my practice.
