Exploring Classical and Folk Mythologies with Old Masters Drawing and Painting Techniques


My intuitive multidisciplinary practice combines classical figurative drawing and painting techniques and mediums with contemporary approaches, deconstructive methodologies and cross-disciplinary exploration. I investigates mythological, psychological and philosophical ideas through a focus on the nuanced relationship between subject and object and the endeavoured reconciliation between finality and ephemera.
