“In my work, I mix the real with the unreal, the known with the unknown. First, I deconstruct by taking multiple samples from a corpus of images produced and made available by the cultural industry. Then, I reconstruct and project a new world, by selecting and bringing together some of these fragments…It’s also easy to understand why most of my sources are conspicuously vintage. Even taken from their respective contexts, the materials I use naturally evoke history.”
