Artist Statement
At first the city rises on the horizon as a phantom and imbeds in my days until I meet her counterpart. This encounter is the beginning of my story. As I depart I start to shape her in my mind, an amorphous construction of stories, desires and expectations. I filter streets, buildings, bushes and skies looking for images that confirm my parallel shadow-city. I start to investigate my new territory, zooming in on seemingly unimportant background details. During long strolls I collect and jot down ephemeral details of the cityscape. Fractions of conversations, a blossoming magnolia under a window, subtle changes in the colour of the sky above the city, the sound of rain in a park: poetical ornaments that are everywhere but define the character of their domain in the way they appear to me. During my observations the border between the city and me slowly fades. If you are somewhere long enough you become the city itself. The process of becoming her I rendered in my work.
