I came to this place, and sited in front of those trees almost every day during big part of 2019 and 2020 before the lockdown. It was a hard moment in my life due several things, I was living what is called "the dark night of the soul" and starting realizing about many things in my life. It's my healing place and although that bad moment is left behind now, I still keep going to see those trees, I don't know what this place have but the world seems to disappear when I'm there and I feel more connected with myself than in anywhere else.
The philosopher Seneca said “loneliness is not being alone, but being empty” and that’s something I realized very young. Contrary to what most of us are taught, I believe being alone can be a good thing, and this notion is the basis for Solitude, which aims to explore feelings of lonesomeness in tandem with spiritual connections within the natural world.
Each of these works function as a self-portrait, manifested as an animal, an atmosphere, and visual/emotional phrase, and sometimes simply myself. In each work I explore a moment of profound experience, scenes of wonder that seek to savor quiet moments of unexpected encounters.
