Visual representation of interconnections between the human and the nonhuman.

Artist statement

Based on feelings or memories, my art process delves into the complex undercurrents of intimate and collective interactions.

It calls upon an emotional framework as a construct to bring the viewer as a participant in this experience.


The blurry boundary between perception and experience always inspired me: I am interested in the randomness of emotion through art by imaging abstract visuals - similar to data maps - based on the subconscious.


My work engages with human nature and any type of environment or element: it includes the nonhuman (objects, animals). We totally ignore and even hide the impact of their inwardness, their mind, and their subjective capacity on the planet we are sharing.


Through paintings, photos, or digital works, I build imaginary coded and abstract algorithms taking up mental, geographic, and collective data based on the various missing links with the nonhuman world. 

Exploring forms and lines in my compositions, I imagine disaggregated cartographies that reveal our social tensions and the invisible connections with the nonhuman world instead of addresses and landmarks.


I am seeking to constantly perfect this technique and renew my process. Artworks address broader mental architecture within me, in an attempt to examine contradiction and harmony inside these new interconnections. The titles are the final result of this tracking by creating a new language, a universal language with objects, animals, or elements around us.


Abstract keeps me focused on a quest for unlimited and unknown psychological territories as a springboard for the imagination.
