I’m curious of our relationship with life.

I believe that our relationship with ourselves and with everything that surrounds us is, in principle, a theological and spiritual one.

I find myself in perpetual exploration of religious practices. Not because I’m a religious person; I’m quite the opposite actually, I’ve always believed that religions, at least in the traditional sense creates limitations and can even cripple or distort basic human nature.

I like to believe the personal exploration I’ve chosen, and the practices that come as a consequence of it, are a way to communicate my concerns and somehow pave the way to rediscovering the purest forms of religious expression.

I try to visually express these explorations because I’m motivated to free us as humans from vicious religious practices that are often imposed on us by even more vicious entities. In order to do this we must find a way back to our roots, to the most pure & practical forms of spiritualism.
We must return to that state that idolized what kept us warm, fed us and sustain us. Return to that raw uncorrupted spiritual identity that allowed us to evolve and develop in the first place.
