Munich) My research goes into the endless energy that pervades the universe, that’s why in my paintings I try to evoke vibrating fields of energy. I am interested in the things that are invisible and cannot easily be apprehended by intellect, because I think that they are the eternal ones. I like to deal with themes of physical science and the co... [more]

Worn as costumes, the synthetic hair pieces engage both with the fetishization of hair, and the location that hair provides for the acting out of... [more]
