Artist Statement

I am a visual artist working across media, primarily with photography and video. In my art I reflects on universal questions that build on the basis of my personal experience. I work with philosophical themes that ask questions about existential topics like what is our purpose on earth. In my praxis, I explore the cycle of life and death and how it has a meaning beyond that of the individual’s existence. I work both physically as well as conceptually with the idea of time and its arbitrary division into past, present, and future, posing questions about the construction and articulation of memory.
