BIO/ STATEMENT:

“Through poetical analogies of Nature and anthropogenic events, my practice emphasizes the inadequacies of instrumental reason as well as critiques contemporary society by exploring the violent nature of the relationship between life and cycles of nature. In my work, organic forms arise threatening human pride and its arrogance and the course of progress, while poetryennobles language and human creations."
