The way I very often choose to work is best described as "expressionist documentary." Stories and explorations of real things, real places, reinterpreted through an expressionistic, subjective and wholly immersed direct experience. Darkly poetic explorations of places, influenced by Gaston Bachelard.
The process of 'direct encounter' is the foundation of my art films
The deep role of time and change is the basic subject matter for all of my work. I'm interested in the “reintegration of fragments” or what Anselm Kiefer has described as “bringing together what has come apart.”
I am interested in revealing images which are very strong; that offer a glimpse of past worlds and indistinct realities; where the boundaries between fiction and documentary blur, and memories take on a life of their own.
