This Persona Series came from Cal Jung's 'Shadow archetypet ' which refer to an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself. I paint to understand the opposing forces of people‘s interior emotional life as well as the contradictions that define my relationship to the world. The more I try to articulate my inner experiences on the canvas or paper, the more the face I’m depicting fragments and dissolves.
How am I
"I feel there something beyond grasp of the human mind. With these paintings I am searching for my inner self and its relationship to the transcendental."
I explored self-portraiture using my own features as a mask performing exaggerated expressions of emotion. My paintings have become images of what lies behind the mask, the always-changing sense of self that cannot be contained in a traditional representation of the face.
