ARTIST STATEMENT

I am interested in finding, seeing and documenting the intimate and the supernatural elements, already present in our ordinary reality, but not so visible to the distracted eye.

I am looking for an ideal symmetry between what exists and what is veiled but still exists, being challenged by the possibility and the impossibility of documenting this ideal perfection.
