Artist's Statement

My work is a reflection on contemporary reality. In it I explore fundamental social and psychological aspects of the human condition, in relation to human perception and interaction. The work, which is poetically figurative in its style, manifests not only what the eye can see – but what one can not always see, or what I call “almost sight.” I try to show what makes us blind, or try to make our blindness seen, by examining not only the visible aspects of reality, but also the limited nature of one’s perception(s). That is, I explore a basic collapse or failure of sight in human perception.
