I’m a portraitist using video, photography and assemblages. My art are attempts to unravel and highlight the often repressed and disconcerting aspects of human nature. The works are either provocations or motivations to question our reliance on taxonomies around sexual representation. Using a direct, matter-of-face approach I create a psychological space between the sitter, artist and the audience.
