Inspired by the circus, illusions, dreams and the innocence and playfulness of childhood, these strange beauties are saturated, eye candy explorations in the odd and the beautiful.
INSPIRATION / artist statment
I am fascinated by the subconscious, the soul, identity, and the way they interact to form meaning and beauty, or nonsense
in everything and nothing. I am inspired by existentialism,
history, language, and nature.
In my newest series of works I challenge limitations to acceptable beauty. Limitations are death to creativity. The idea of being wrong is also a sort of death. The idea of wrong is something that intrigues me: wrong, non-sense, things that don’t belong, colors that don’t quite fit together. The idea that something can be wrong makes me want to see what kind of magic lies behind the world of “no” “bad” and “mistake”.
