"My work develops from an intense curiosity about the world, an inquisitiveness that encourages me to constantly explore and experiment. Questioning established norms, I challenge traditional tools and materials, testing their limits and seeking new uses. Through repetition, illusion and fabrication, I explore the mutability and indefinable nature of the art object. Investigating conventions, sources of power, and control, my work breaks down barriers and dissects systems of authority, inviting the viewer to question what they consider to be official, normal, and accepted."
