About the exhibition:

The works in this show are playful investigations full of contradictions, consisting of fragments of architecture and found objects that have been taken out of context, manipulated and exaggerated. I search within chaotic environments for subtleties and moments of beauty that normally goes unnoticed, and I aim to explore the aesthetic symbolism of what I am drawing from, and question the way these objects can exist. With an inventive use of materials, these objects and installations transcend recognizable forms, destroying old patterns to create new ones.
