Born 1975. Based in Lisbon, Portugal
For the past 22 years, status-anxiety and a misplaced sense-of-purpose motivated me to climb up the corporate ladder. I succeeded.
For the last 11 years, what started as an anti-stress hobby has become an overwhelming urge to produce images, now occupying all my limited leisure time.
I would like my work to be about an over-load of the senses, about limited time and limited means, about how insistence can produce relevance, about the systematic use of instinct and accidents, about the pursuit of images inducing sensations of strangeness and profundity.
I use palimpsests, earlier works that turn into new works by drawing or painting them over.
I listen to repetitive contemporary music while working, in the hope of entering altered states of conscience.
