“These images are a selection of work from 2009 – 2011. My photography and photomontage pieces come from personal exploration and childhood superstitions documented from behind closed doors. I shoot within the familiar walls of home and surroundings working often in the tightest corners or crouched low to the floorboards.
I want to communicate with my own ghosts, to produce and document a voice that others might recognize. Continue Reading →
“I think my photography is a game, or a role play, somewhere placed between arts and reality – with an artwork that ideally lures the viewer into a realm of untold stories.

Non avrei voluto essere d’altro che specchio
e di sponda restituire in superficie
tutto il fondo incolorire della luce

giving back off the cushion on the surface

to the one smiling toward me as if alone
an unknown face of his own.
Instead I hold back a spot a colour
and to answer something new:
I am still unable.

For all three the surrounding landscape is intrinsic to her existence. Continue Reading →
UNDER THE LEAVES
2010 – ongoing
“Under the leaves, something is happening, something is growing that will not abate until they return there for good”
Under the Leaves is a work striving to change our perception of vegetation. It is imbued with reverence for the silence and constancy of trees and flora. It intends to give a presence to vegetation, to emphasize that it is living of another kind of life than ours, that we cannot fathom, unconscious, obscure. Continue Reading →
