Artist Statement

I believe in the power of leading by example.

Perception is a central theme in most of my personal work. Its manipulation both by external forces, as in propaganda, and by internal ones, such as the distortion of memory, collectively or individually. Working in advertising, I had a glimpse of this manipulation of reality, mainly created by capitalism. I want to inspire people to peek behind the curtain. Because real change starts when we all change the way we think and by extension our behaviour. For this we need a deeper understanding of the way the world we live in works and how our choices affect it.

I believe that sustainability integrates the wellbeing of every natural and living thing.
