During the last couple of years, I’ve been focused on works that explore the charged meaning of the word “Romantic”. This exploration focuses in creation and manipulation of various natural phenomena, with the use of theatrical motifs to portray an artist as he puppeteers the illusion behind the scenes and controls what could be referred to as the suspension of disbelief. I'm interested in placing the viewer where he can be mesmerized by the illusion created by the art-piece, while being fully aware of the artifice. As my practice constantly shifts from intervention in nature to observation of it.
