About the Work

“At its core, my work attempts to capture the feelings and emotions I experience and to translate them into the surreal spaces that we all inhabit within ourselves. The goal is to explore feelings and emotions, on murky cerebral levels, and to construct the tumultuous and beautiful inner world that resides within all of us. I call this inner world the Silent Echo and my exhibitions have been about exploring this rich and textured place. A variety of mediums such as pen and ink, water colour and most recently glass have been employed. Each exhibition is a chapter of the journey deconstructed.”

“This collection of work seeks to answer the unanswered questions that my previous work begged to inquire. What I have done is to represent this inner world using a different medium and to present it as a series of animated digital holograms floating inside glass prisms.”
