Often I find myself struggling to existbetween parallel universes. Within my artwork I have tried to unitethese universes by creating unique images which combine mundanematerials like food colouring and vaseline with darkroom photographicpaper. The three elements are left to react with one another underthe heat of the sun. The colourful pigmentations and complexstructures are the results of nature's own creative skill.
I contrast this universe with thecurrent state of affairs: the digital world. By photographing eachresult individually, I am able to create single layers which cansubsequently be joined together. With photoshop I am able to alterthe hue and contrast of the images in order to portray complexrelationships which surround me. Some of the creations include a hintof a past image, which at times reflects complicated relationships Ichoose to keep secret.
In the end, the basis of my work isinspired by Renata Buziak, who focusses on the process of naturaldecomposition and its effect on photographic paper. But, the coresource lies within my own life story. I create a vague depiction of acolourful yet sometimes harmful childhood. Memories of ecstaticsmiles and care-free bodies floating in a field of green grass andbright flowers, contrasted with moments of pain and horror, andtainting by the overpowering mistakes of terrorism and injustice.
