STATEMENT

 

For the past 40 years, my work has been an exploration of the human condition, investigating various aspects and relationships between history, culture and art. Oftentimes, the projects would consist of a “collage” of multiple works of different media, such as painting, photography, video installation, music composition and sound sculptures to emphasize context. During research and production new areas of interests arise and lead to the next body of work.
