One of my primary themes is the Self, a concept which I think a lot about
and is of prime importance to me.
There are two fundamental reasons why this is the case; my personal and collective narcissism, but also my yearning to know who I really am - not only my identity,
but my being - which combine time and time again in my art.
These opposing forces create a state of uncertainty in me,
and thus the need to know, to explore the question.
With this exhibition I want to convey different identities and states of being we adopt and make clear the idea that they are possibilities which are always open
for us to choose.
I have come to this premise after experiencing all of these identities, in seeing that I was able to move on, that I was able to choose, in becoming aware of them as characters more than as experiences (which occur when the character is embraced).
Essentially, I recognized that these were aspects of myself, and that I could choose which one to experience regardless of the situation.
This premise is not final, but it is a choice I (and we) make every day.
The exhibition is structured in three parts:
-The Catalyst: I begin by asking Who Am I?
-The Struggle: I live unaware through polar states
-The Choice: I become aware of the choice and choose
I hope you enjoy the exhibition,
Thank you truly for your time and attention,
