The works of recent years investigate the relation between the real and the image. It is an inquiry into the nature of human perception and the substance of reality. Across a variety of mediums, these works pose the ambiguity of the essential reality of the physical object on the one hand and the inherently artificial nature of their depiction on the other.The work allows the object to manifest in its actual, material and sensory ambiguity.
