Artist Statement
“I’m not interested in the obvious beauty of places or people, but in what is not immediately visible, or in what becomes visible when you extrapolate one part of a scene and show the interaction between various elements within it to create something new. For me, reality is not necessarily what you see, but also what you choose to look at.”
