Artist Statement

I create crossbreeds, and connect intricate, surrealistic "light-bearing" objects, luring the viewer into a world of fantasy and imagination. This combinations and fusions generate an illusion, introducing new perspectives which orient and move toward the light.

I am interested in exploring and uncovering the poetic elements built into the technological world, while striving to transform the resulting research data into a visual display. It is an investigative process committed to asking questions, probing,and attempting to comprehend the world in which we live, the possibilities at hand, and the expectations for the future. The relationship between information and meaning arising from the works is associated with acts of subtraction, addition, and equation of the different fields of knowledge, while breaking free from the fetters of concreteness, duration, and memory, and taking the liberty to create a new space of operation. The displayed information and the visual capacity discernible in my works sustain a system of equilibrium and a delicate balance between object and image, artist and inspiration, setting and dream. Each work is based on a dialogue between figure and setting, tracing the embodiment of informative concepts and the object's ability to convey and transfer them, as they cumulate to form meaningful statements. The warning signs, symbols, icons, and emblems of society, culture, and various digital media are sketche d and etched on the surface. They fuse to spawn new forms which function as a recurring motif in the works; a type of private, invented lexicon decoded into a stance, prompting a critical social discourse which sheds light on and warns against dangerous situations and elements that have taken over our environment and have become an integral part of our lives.
