Currently, my work delves into themes of memory, hauntology, and the influence nostalgia exerts on the human psyche and its creative manifestations. I invite viewers to join me on this introspective journey, to explore the labyrinths of their own recollections and the impact they have on their lived experiences.

Working with analog techniques such as watercolor, printmaking, or in the case of my current film, soft pastel presents a constant challenge that encourages me to relinquish complete control and embrace imperfection. The unpredictability of the analog demands a level of surrender, allowing the materials to guide my process.

An excerpt of my final film.
