In era of individual identity crisis, my work is a paradoxical attempt to reconstruct the relevancy of the artist personal voice as a romantic figure. My art main concern is to find a positive aspect in the perilous state of our emotional life, narcissism, egoism, boredom, neurosis and existential anxiety. These terms struggle to characterize a life lacking in purpose and a sense of community - in short, a life of spiritual emptiness.
