BLOODLINE#1 : CHARM

 

BLOODLINE#8: MOTHER

 

BLOODLINE#2: TIME MACHINE

 

Artist statement:

My “Bloodline” series is puzzling me still: such a great excuse for adding some more. I know it speaks of human connections – vertical (parents, children, ancestors) - horizontal (siblings, lovers, reflections, alter egos). Blood runs through the pieces and it gives them color. As an assemblage artist I first disassemble: I ask myself what blood is made of. What do we give when we give life? What do we receive when we are loved? I’m not sure. Those pieces play with the questions: they spread them on the wall, ask the viewer, invite other questions. They are meant to circulate - fluid, alive, open, wounded.
