ARTIST INFO

About 

Understatements and embarrassing thoughts. I am interested in current events and the pains and passions of my friends and family. I am part of a generation rooted in a culture of constant self-improvement and a belief in the individual’s absolute ability to self-regulate and impact the world around them. I comment on this by using the self-portrait as a prop. In this way, I want to emphasize the universality of human existence in the context of sensations and conflicts and initiate a dialogue on the contemporary condition of the individual. I use two colours in my artwork: red and blue. Red represents tension, temperament and conflict. Blue is a symbol of harmony, reflection and mourning. I am curious about the interaction of these colours and the contrast that represents an exchange between the intensity of impressions and the compulsion to block them out.
