Rather than through the intellect, I experience the world through my senses. As a visual artist, I have always been fascinated by the eye, which I see as simultaneously the subject and the object of my work. In this painting, the eye is depicted in a clock-like structure symbolizing the passing of time. A question mark cuts across the canvas, as if to interrogate time itself, as if time could provide the answers to the questions life poses. Finally, a gold pigment embellishes the painting, signifying a newly found acceptance not only of the passing of time, but also of the impossibility to find the answer to all the questions we ask ourselves.
