Drifts

 

A portrait…

Is it a genuine, true reflection of real life, is it a mirror of reality?

The first glimpse of a perfect world, sleek and beautified with Photoshop should be questioned, its illusions exposed – seeing, perceiving, shedding light on the outer appearances, allowing the constructed facades to crumble.

Capsules

 

Inner worlds of visuals push to the surface and unfold themselves.

In a permanently endless flood of visuals, the unconscious, mixed with fictional and imaginary, permanently triggers visual stimuli and opens up tabooed images.

Nylongirls

 

What does our exterior conceal? Do we show our true faces? How many skins and masks do we have?

Do we wear make-up, are we tattooed, pierced, and what are we trying to say with all that? Those are questions that get under my skin.
