The passage of time has been a recurring theme in my work. I am constantly reminded of the uncertainty and fragility of life and of our ability as humans to adapt to the most unlikely situations. My work employs symbols that are open to interpretation: trees with their skeletons exposed, birds in precarious positions, overripe fruit, birds’ nests exposed and vulnerable, even the landscape that surrounds and engulfs me. All of these and more create a personal mythology that attempts to make sense of the twists and turns in life. I am also very influenced by magic realist literature and am fascinated by the idea that imagination carries equal weight with reality.
