Work

“Our thoughts are molded by thinking in conditioned forms, from a smudge to the further construction of an oeuvre is the logical sequence.

Power is born out of chance, founded by tenderness and pain. The genesis of symbols has been ripened by century old emotions.
My creative process in this context is only a part of the end result. That is why our visual preconceived idea is just an onset and where titles are unnecessary.
