As an artist, I am fascinated by the way social media and new technologies influence our image of the world and of ourselves. In my paintings, I explore the illusion of perfection we often see in influencers on Instagram and other platforms.
Through suggestive figuration and soft colours, clean lines and stylised shapes, I try to capture the superficiality of this online world. My work depicts a world of smooth surfaces and false promises, where we constantly compare ourselves to others and try to hide our own imperfections.
Behind these seemingly perfect lives often lies a sense of emptiness, loneliness and emotional baggage. My paintings show how this illusion keeps us from finding real connection and meaning in life.
With my work, I want to take a critical look at the culture of perfection that social media feeds and encourages us to live a life that is not real, this without judgement. I hope my paintings encourage us to question what is really important in life and remind us of the value of real connection and authenticity.
