As an artist I am interested in how cultures attract and collide, creating a new hybrid voice of the future. Understanding the dynamics of exile and migration, is for me, a direct consequence of my upbringing. I believe that my mixed heritage has been a rich source of material to work with, though at times it has also created numerous questions within me about identity, sense of belonging and place in the world.
The sense of not quite belonging, yet, at the same time being an observer of life, the tiny tremor of conflict within oneself, that is also a way to see the divisions and connecting threads that link each one of us to a complex wider world. My work shows the strength and frailty of the human body. I create my art to begin a dialogue with the viewer, to talk about social and political world issues that affect us all as humans, regardless of race, religion or gender.
