|“My work draws the viewers in, shakes them, screams at them with demanding subjects. The figures portrayed staring intensely. Each subject is deeply engaged with the own history, present but at the same time detached. They are the youth of a disenchanted world, proudly brandishing their own disillusions to a distressed observer. The young faces depicted embrace several feelings; through these emotions the characters affirm their genuine presence (their Da-Sein) only in the present moment since they have no yesterday and no tomorrow, no drive nor ambition.”|
