A couple of words for my projects and topics
Moments of everyday life from my personal point of view. Heat, cold, suffocation, dust, anxiety, agony, tears, wing then calm, dirty clothes, erode, guilt, sweat.
Worn from time and friction, empty thoughts.
All these heavy on our heads. Big weight, the pressure is intolerable which translates in a nervous laugh, so nervous or even ecstatic, the pressure of the typing press can be identified in my work.
Laughter to a point of tears, with purification in mind, can be turned in to crying, but what is the difference? All and nothing, together and apart, it’s the same! Or not? I apologize for troubling you, but look at my work anyway. However, is there any reason for explaining ones work? I just limit your imagination this way. Forget the titles, apply your own- they are only there for identification purpose.
