Statement:
I am intrigued by essence and absence.
I shoot through rapid movement of scenery: this is the starting point for subtraction, exasperation of contrast and scarification of the image until nothing but essence is left, an intimate and hidden projection of Self, an outstretched hand towards the viewer. The viewer is completely immersed in a psychedelic dimension. In my art-works the viewer will find the starting point to ask themselves the meaning of time between past, present and future. In my artworks there is always a street, because streets are a symbolic place of transit, of transition, of passage, of thoughts, of dreams, of illusions, of tears, of loneliness, in suspension towards our mysteries. This is the reason why in my art time is frozen, with no visible place to reach, simply the world around me. The streets simply vanish into darkness.
