"I'm hugely influenced by dada and neo-dada. In this photography project, I explore a peculiar combination of photography, painting & collage. I create three-dimensional collages with found objects, food, and cheaply printed old paintings.


I turn pre-existing works of art into Duchampian ready-made and take photographs of them. I use strong shadows, layering, crumpling and folding effects to give a three-dimensional sense in the final work.


I reduce the details and forms of painting by covering objects, and food. Copies of old masters paintings initially evoke viewers' memories. By using unexpected juxtapositions of objects, I try to create ambiguity and pull viewers' attention deeper into my photographs. In many ways, I examine new type of still life."
