  • Biography
My work makes connections between mythology and reality, different phenomena in the world, between nature and human being, cultures and traditions. I’m interested also in issues of identity.
Having engaged subjects as diverse as the nature, mythologies, my work reproduces familiar visual and aural signs, arranging them into new conceptually layered digital art, photos, videos, land art / nature art installations and different performances.
While I use a variety of modern technologies, materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work. Each project often consists of multiple works, often in a range of different media, grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.
The technology and the use of materials in my work are calculated. I’m often looking for avenues of the unexpected. In a world that is constantly changing via incredible leaps in technology and unbelievable strains upon the environment I am constantly questioning our connection to the land and our loss of connection to that land.
I believe that energy connects us within space and time to each other, the planet and everything in, on and around it so I try my best to establish that connection, at least for myself and the participants, receptive, viewers of my art. Performance and ritual have always played an essential role in my work.
