”Without images, melodies or languages worth loving and worshipping, we would lose the ability to withstand existence.”
“When we try to pick up anything by itself we find it is attached to everything in the universe.”
— John Muir
Despite their macabre overtones and Gothic atmosphere, his images are a tender and dignified take on human life: ”For me, the only thing worth studying is the human condition” he explains. ”It is meaningful only through the creation of awareness, understanding, character, identity: in short, all that involves being human. I prefer to turn to making these images, making use of my own internal feelings rather than clumsily attempting to portray some outside reality.” Essentially this translates into the artist and his emotions becoming the subject of the art, a quintessentially Romantic idea.
