As an artist who works in a variety of media, I strongly believe in an interdisciplinary approach to the visual arts. "Aesthetics of Decay" is a series of paintings, drawings and installations that challenge our customary view of aesthetics in our natural world. Rather than perceiving a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the imagination.
Works are based on climate change and its visual effects on the planet including flood, glaciers and drought affected landscapes. They evoke the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality. Subjective associations are made based on formal parallels that encourage the viewer to make new personal associations.
My work deals with the documentation of events, while focusing on aesthetics and representation.
Using visual seductiveness, I complicate reception of the works myriad layers of meaning.
