As an Artist I’m trying to recreate images that have no logic. These images are full of mystery and sometimes impossible to understand. Their actions are playful and satirical. They ridicule and confuse the viewer. They are a parody of human rules and explain to the viewer that nothing should be taking seriously.They explain, that we are no longer in the physical world. My subjects and protagonists are experiencing a grotesque metamorphosis and are shape shifting. Their faces are transforming into animal skulls and are often showing animal characteristics as well. This begins live in constant duality, were they live and die, they are human and animal, nature and void, light and matter.
