When people come to see my works, they have different expectations; I am trying to show them what they think they see might not exist, I mean invisible, like the feelings, thoughts.
I am always trying to make them feel what I am trying to capture. Why? I say that the things that I am trying to capture don't exist, because every human being is creating his own truth.
Where does their truth come from? It comes from their own subjective experimentations, where they grow up, their education...etc. I chose my path as an artist on the simple question "Are we real", and I ask them the question in a provocative way with sculpture, painting and photography.
