Pupil And Master

 

Childhood is the place where identity is crafted. The Boy (innocent archetype) appears violently held by a mentor figure.
The diptych references ‘El Lazarillo de Tormes’ (1819) by Goya.

 

SELF-REFLECTIONS is a series of satirical and surreal self-portraits, presenting a repertoire of four personalities that live inside the same person. I photograph my different sub-personalities as archetypes and fairy tale characters. I name them: The Villain, The Joker, The Prince and The Boy.

 

The images, meticulously constructed like paintings with in-depth work on their characterisation, colour and style, form allegorical tableaux whose narratives intertwine artistic, cinematic and philosophical references. They evoke the construction of identity, childhood, death, freedom, madness… sometimes to comedic effect.

 

Irony and subversion invite the viewer to a striking world filled with a strange chromatic unreality, a theatre of the absurd where a single actor plays all the roles.
