Statement from the Artist:
My work concerns two things: first, perception and second, presence. Within my images, I construct unworldly environments, but within those, I leave accidental elements of my own home. This creates a delicate balance between illusion and reality. With no digital manipulation and only light’s disruption, what you are seeing does not appear real but the subtle remnants contradict this intuition. The installation of the work demands presence. This is not work that is made to be seen through reproduction or on screens, or even a frame on the wall. It is meant to be encountered on foot and explored.
