2013 2nd Place Award

I’m searching for a certain sense of wonder in my images, something that transcends reality. I embrace the fantastical and balance the line between what is possible and what is impossible. Our society is increasingly complex, productive, and efficient. Although this can be considered as positive, I do feel that something is missing or rather that something is amiss. In my work I combine the dark side with the absurd. I question the artificiality in our society sometimes from the perspective of the animal kingdom. I have a feeling that we are living in fast-forward, but the question is … where to?
