I often describe my works as being about encounters of bodies, especially the encounters that seem to be random and without impact at the moment but have the potential to change the trajectory of the lives of both parties.  My practice is related to topics including issues of gender temperament, homosexual desire, the abject, inbetweenness, identification and differentiation, etc. as they are very connected to my personal life.

I work interdisciplinary with painting, text, object, sculpture and performance, while painting is the core of my practice. As an artist, I use the surface of my body as a layer of semi-permeable membrane which filters my biographies, personalities and retains them inside me. The rest goes through.

To some extent, my art is an extension of myself. My practice explores the border between personal and impersonal, the possibility that life and art become one. And in this way, I attempt to experience how the new percepts from us to the world are composed, how we observe the power of these new percepts which are independent from the lived perception and in this process how do we create decisions, determinations and even concepts.
