About Artist

I am interested in the dichotomy and relationship between Nature and Culture, often using the animal as a symbolic Other. I also incorporate ideas of Cosmology, Psychoanalysis and Mysticism in my work. My practice encompasses a variety of mixed media, such as Photography/Video, Performance and drawing.
