A collection of landscapes around the world that capture the essence of the location and/or moment.
2013 - 2015
A collection of faces and personalities. Some say your eyes say everything, but what the person looks at also speak a thousand words. The body also speaks what the mind thinks, and these images express each persons condition in one way or another.
Life is momentary and ephemeral, and we seem to repress our fear of death and grimace at the sight of what reminds us of our mortality. The inevitability of death pushes us to seek for power, adrenaline, and emotions, to defy our human limitations and create the illusion that we are in control of our destiny. Throughout the history of art, man has defined and redefined beauty and the grotesque; it is an impermanent concept. The rawness of flesh and blood seems tasteless to the larger crowd, while that which represents life is a commonly deemed “beautiful”. By combining raw meat and organs with pleasant elements I explore the boundaries of aesthetics in the viewer's reaction to these blended elements.
