FACE (Octobre 2019)
Resin, laser sheets
15 x 13 x 5 cm
The inspiration for this piece came from Dustin Yelin. Like him, I used resin to create layers one by one from the separated image. Each individual layer can be seen (profile) as well as the whole image (front). In my work this effect creates a feeling of unfamiliarity with something that is extremely familiar, like the human face. This intertwines with the theme of the multilayered human character. The separation of a photograph into multiple layers is a visual metaphor for human personality.
Junction (March 2020)
Plastic, styrofoam, wooden panel, paint
100 x 65 cm
This idea emerged from the concept street markets and soap bubbles shear. A unique element of transparency making them neither exterior nor interior. Although both have an area enclosed by their structure, that area does not fully belong to them (unlike an inside of a building enclosed within its rigid exterior) as it is connected to the outside. Because of this similarity in their structural composition I was keen to experiment with how their visual and conceptual properties could be combined.
Motus_tiles (Novembre 2018)
10 x 11 cm
Clay can take any shape, but I find its most important feature is its ability to retain imprints of individual touch. A mark made on clay by a hand can express multiple emotions, and as they change so does the clay. This is an exploration of how emotions can be permanently "fixed" on clay. Each tile was created at a different time and is imprinted with emotions I was experiencing at that moment. The immediacy of touch is preserved in the tiles, creating a visual account of transient feelings.
