Artist Statement

My artistic work is mostly driven by a keen interest of how reality is perceived by humans.

I am a child.

I am intellectually curious.

I am surprised at all the economic mania.

I am interested in experiments, not in routines.


My method is approximation.

My recipe is to don’t use any.

My hope is a world without war and starvation.

My art is widely independent of financial strategies.


I beliefe that coincidence is stronger than design.

I beliefe that nature is smarter than human intelligence.

I beliefe that challenges are more important than comfort.

I beliefe that truth is a fiction.
