My works explore public images indicative
of contemporary life. Particular mass media images reveal to me an
ambiguous atmosphere between humor and horror: safety instructions,
ribbon cutting ceremonies, political conferences, etc. I explore the
threat of violence and fear in society, the absurdity and the
loneliness behind these politically-correct, capitalistic images.
However, life is full of contradictions, I'm not ridiculing anything
or making any demands, but rather outlining a kind of lighthearted
contradiction which makes use of the context of signage to create the
effect of a symbolic self-negation.
