My art is an exploration of the human condition, particularly the complexities of memory, experience, and perception and how they shape our understanding of the world. I am particularly interested in the theme of alienation and how it relates to our sense of self and our connection to the world around us.
In my paintings, I use surreal imagery and a monochromatic palette to convey feelings of disorientation and disconnection. The use of grotesque and bizarre elements challenges the viewer's perception of reality and questions their understanding of the world. I employ a variety of oil painting techniques, such as wet on wet, impasto, and sfumato, to convey the intricacies of the mind and the memories that shape our perceptions.
My artwork is deeply personal, drawing from my own experiences and incorporating personal myths and symbolism to express deeper emotions and ideas. I invite the viewer to reflect on the complexities of the human experience and the role that memory, experience, and perception play in shaping our understanding of the world.
My current body of work is a series of paintings titled "Alienated Landscapes" where I explore the theme of alienation in the context of nature, and how it relates to our relationship with the environment. Through this series, I aim to create a sense of unease and discomfort, encouraging the viewer to question their own understanding of the world and the role they play in it.
