In this series, “WUNDERWALD,” the forest stands as a metaphor for the tangled secrets of adulthood, rooted precariously in the perspective and memories of a child. Full of wonder, enticement and enigma, the forbidden figures meld with the ground of experience and waves of collective unconscious. Cartoonlike and anthropomorphic drawing outlines are gradually and increasingly overlaid with impasto as experiences weave their tendrils throughout our encounters, connections and revelations, lacquered over with a sheen of nostalgia and selective amnesia.
