Present
- Work in Progress - Artist Studio - Berlin
This new body of work presents a visual interpretation of aspects found between the imaginary and the ordinary. It symbolizes a reference to the environment, taking into consideration the planet's reaction to human behavior.
Incorporating surrealist and semi-abstract elements, I make use of this conceptual framework to investigate socio-political interests and personal experiences.
