A bright night in the Garden of Eden

Religion and mythology have long been one of the subjects of my work. I made a series about Buddhism, Shamanism, the Islam, Christianity and ancestor worshipping.

Inspired by my own garden and the nature documentaries by David Attenborough, I explored the text of Genesis as an expedition into the imagination and the garden of Eden became a voluptuous area where the instinctive desires of men, plants and animals are freely celebrated.

The photographic collages interrogate the relationship between reality and virtual representation. The images, taken out of their natural context, are imagined as modern mosaics.  On the surface the aesthetic value of a photographic element presents itself as a cover for another conceptual research into the alternative, undefined space.
