Artistic Vision

During our existence, we are called to evolve, grow, change, become… For better…. and for worse. What in a lifetime causes someone to switch from light to dark and vice versa? Does it move from the role of the victim to the aggressor reciprocally? What are, in a lifetime, these turning points where humanity seeks to die out, or to resurface? And why?

Based on lived experiences, reflections, observations, as well as questions, I try to put in perspective the meeting of these different identities as well as their interactions, whether through different people, or in a single and even body.
