About This Artwork

Glimpses, traces and shadows suggest the uneasy presence of an invisible observer lurking within as well as outside the frame. Toying between the perspective of the adolescent and the adult, struggling to reconstruct an elusive past and memory of the present. Her work speaks of family, friendship and loss, of primal fears and unspoken tragedies, and ultimately of a dark playfulness that diffuses melancholy.
