Peuple Dilué









A series of ink on paper drawings, Peuple dilué investigates the psychology of bodies untethered to borders and regions. Originally inspired by the Roma population of Sutka, Macedonia, this on-going series explores the idea of a people versus a nation and transient identities.

Artist’s Statement 

My work is focused on the human form and psyche. By placing the body as a recognizable yet universal form in ambiguous situations, I explore its psychology in relation to itself and to its environment. Through experimentation in disparate mediums, I depict highly imaginary interpretations of the diverse worlds I have inhabited. I invite the viewer into these non-places that I create, which permeate boundaries as much as they help build them.
