Natural & Urban Worlds : New Mythologies 2008-2014
Since 2005, the work addresses the relationship between human-ness and nature, swaying between a desire for destruction and reverence.

But in 2009 the figure becomes both sacred and monstrous, possessed by its experience and progressively revealing itself. It is no longer a matter of conflict but of possession. As if a closer, more meticulous observation of reality finally cancelled polarities.. Bringing forth opposites into a new unmentionable cohesion.. a terrible beauty.. an acceptance of nature's dynamics..

The fragmented use of non figurative elements (text, symbols and abstraction) points towards the immaterial aspects of experience.
