My work plays with the ambiguities between flatness and infinite depth. I create an illusion of emptiness through shapes concealed in a dark palette, a deep void suspended in time. An ambivalent landscape, simultaneously familiar and strange, unfolds through displaced remnants of architectural structures. Wandering fragments of passages, arches and doorways reflect a history of no-place from an abstracted past. They evoke a longing for a different time and place. The images are isolated from their origins; they compose a world exhausted of life.
