Birth year

Lives in


Seneca the Younger once said, “Nullum magnum ingenium sine mixture dementia fuit,” essentially that there has not been any great talent without an element of eccentricity. Benjamin Franklin later in history stated that “Our whole life is but a greater and longer childhood.” My body of work lays in the connection of these two sentiments. My life, and the long lineage and history of my family have a prominent mark on my sense of self and art practice. My work addresses childhood memories and ambiguous fantasy, but revisited through maniac adult eyes. The randomness of this perspective drives me to hold onto images and photographically captured moments, in the hope of imposing stability and fixedness to experiences and realities long past, often reconstructed over times and through longing. This obsession with the past and with memories is a bifurcated experience, which I then attempt to suture together through the practice of my art work.
