Artist Statement - Bio

I work in the subliminal space between the cinematic and the photographic. My art, whether cinema or photography, explores extreme opposites and strives to merge them into a single, cohesive expression. The works are beautifully bizarre, often evoking a sense of insecurity and danger in the observer. It's the ambivalence, mystery and intensity inherent in the works that generates an unsettling energy that I find beautiful and challenging. I strive to create images that simultaneously represent loneliness, solitude, harmony, dissonance.

I see myself as a visual storyteller. I find a rupture in the story and freeze the unfinished storyline, distorting visual concept to create works that are intense, dramatic and mysterious.
