“Unsettling eroticism in the context of surface beauty” – West 11 magazine

I like cold empty decaying interiors, cinematic and dream-like, resonating with nightmares of being lost and misplaced. I create images of women lost in reverie, caught in muted desire or moments of anguish. The subjects are detached, anonymous, often faceless and somehow incomplete.

For exhibitions, I rip the edges off final prints, cut and slash them, sometimes decorate with lace and ribbons or cover them with gauze.
