Artist's Statement:

“The relation between man, and the cosmos of which he is a part motivates my artworks. During his life, man attains and develops the ability to understand and process information. The tools, scriptures and rituals that he creates and that surround him allow him to organize that, which he has observed and experienced.

Through my art, I search for our presence in the places where we live and function every day. I then present our daily life in the context of the various unimaginable processes that have been taking place since the beginning of the universe. I want to emphasize that our everyday reality is the reality described by science, but at the same time it is a reality filled with emotion and affection, both shaped and limited by sensory cognition.”
