Supporting statements:

I have extensively travelled throughout Haiti. This was an extension to my exploration of the he world in order to investigate uncertainties, which are deeply embedded into anxieties associated with the human existence and being.
I have witnessed total poverty before, including areas of gang infested la Mosquitia in Honduras, the Barrios in El Salvador and many other countries in South America and Asia. However, Cite Soleil, just outside Port-au-Prince, was very different. It left me numb, speechless and overwhelmed. My reflections initiated a range of experimentations for my current research project.
There was something unreal about talking with people there while trying to to establish a form of connection with them.
All my thoughts and feelings in response to those dramatic and totally overpowering moments are echoed in the multi-layered process of painting and printing, which is, subsequently, brutally blasted with a powerful jet of water.
What survives this “torture” is unique, uncontrollable and fully uncertain.
