Comment

I define my artistic research and my works as media through which I can try to discover common languages. The concept of media I refer to by this and choose to work in is analogue media, such as traditional paintings and sculptures. I also happen to be colour blind. Although I originally studied painting, I began focusing on media such as sculptures and installations as a result of my colour blindness. I express my longing to be a painter through these other media.
