The ebb and flow of my life’s circumstances, the vulnerability of my spirit and its resilience is always juxtaposed to my close relationship to nature. My current body of work explores a complex relationship with time and memory. Photoshop creates layers of virtual media with layers of context and changed perceptions of reality. It opens the possibilities of a surreal, spiritual multilevel visual experience.
Photography has always been a part of my creative life. The art of digital photography provides me the opportunity to indulge in my compulsive curiosity by capturing thousands of moments of beauty. I enjoy viewing the world through a lens, from the tiniest miracles of everyday life to witnessing the grand wonders of nature and urban culture during my travels.
My photographs become the starting point of recombing the images to create a completely new narrative. By not using the images in their original context challenges the primary objective of travel photography and its intension of documentation. I suggest a unique interpretation where fragments of moments have the power to create a completely new journey.
I always begin with an initially strong image embedded with the memories and emotion of the time when the image is captured. This creative process echoes my approach to media as a painter where technology allows for the possibilities of many interesting layers that contribute to the development of surface similar as if using paint. There is the space here for visual accidents in both surface and content. The composite images I make can be fascinating, creepy or amusing while evoking a subjective dreamlike imaginary world between the past and the present, nature and culture. Mixing the past and the present create new connections and transformations.
