My art deals with escapism. Whether I am creating disconnected psychological worlds, disturbing monsters or dealing with alter egos, the main concern is evading reality.
For example, “Owls” series makes reference to an older series that deals with the capacity of the human mind to dissociate within the dissociative identity disorder. I tried to depict both the inner world of trauma and its hypnotic force from which the victim cannot escape. These images seem disconnected from reality, alluding to an altered state of consciousness.
I choose the digital prints technique because I am searching for a mechanical gesture that characterizes the dissociative/mechanic worlds I am creating.
Thus my art is both powered by painful imagery and trying to evade from it.
