Statement:
My work addresses the tension between iconic unity and digital fuzziness, between the uncontaminated original and its inevitable decay, between recognizability and facelessness, between personal and depersonalized identity through substitution, mediation and commoditization. Drawing from mythology, politics, pop culture, ads, signage, my works at the base of it, is simply a way to emulate the process of materialization of a thought or imagination. It bears within it clues of transformation and morphing.
