Art enlivens my days, as dreams do my nights. Each day brings new ways in which
to engage with materials, indulge in obsessive details, and to give expression to the
wanderings of my imagination.
Secret Lives is figurative in nature, but somewhat abstract, as it deals with
obsession and arousal. Plastic surgeries, eating disorders, internet porn, and media
reports about the indiscretions of celebrities and politicians feed our ceaseless
appetites. Using a limited palette, textures and a language of anatomic forms,
Secret Lives is about the power of touch, desire, and our mysterious interiors.
