Grief is vast and ungraspable. On the flip side, desire is constantly on the edge. The pull of desire and the push of grief are intertwined forces that act upon one another—grief is the risk of unfulfilled desire. I construct frameworks around grief and desire to justify the use of visual metaphors in my work. They materialize emotions and thoughts from the artist’s solipsistic mind into sensorial forms that exist in the physical world as camouflage and protection.
