From poetry to movement, to installation, I enjoy exploring many creative expressions, however lens work and digital art is my to go staple and typically tends to fall into one of two categories: stillness and mirrors of seeing.

In stillness I enjoy capturing and transmitting the always permeating silence through the beauty of ordinary moments. You could say that this type of photography has become inadvertently my mindfulness practice.

The mirrors of seeing on the other hand, confront us with the truths of our times through observations of our bizarre, and sometimes painfully absurd civilization.

These pieces tend to fall into critique type work. These I think are more rare of the two collections.

Either way, the work often comes spontaneously as a result of bewilderment, wonder and stillness.

Since my main interest outside of art is the fascination for this mesmerizing existence called life, deconstructing and exploring the age old question of what is the nature of consciousness, reality, relationship, and the self, including existential as well as social layers, I often explore the world of archetypes, myths, beliefs, symbols and associations, to dig deeper, far into our subconscious, and occasionally weave it into art projects.
