In my series of staged photographs, I assume the role of fictitional artist characters. I develop the characters, make their artwork, build their rooms, create/choose their costumes, represent the artists themselves and photograph myself doing it.
Of central importance to me is the symbiotic relationship between the artist and the artwork. I am interested in the fluid extension of the own self that reaches into the space and materializes in the work of art. The characters merge in expression, shape and performance with their works. With the camera I am trying to capture these moments of expanding subjectivity and explore in different scenes the meaning of the role of artists as figures of art.
