Catherine Deneuve from the series “My Life With The Wave”

You’ve seen them, but have you really looked at them?

Most female celebrities have been viewed and portrayed through the eyes of male artists and photographers.

This new series tells the story crafted from a woman’s point of view, depicting the “Wave” in its different moods through pop culture and inspired by Octavio Paz’s intense love story “My Life With The Wave”, which was narrated from a male perspective.

These images, of well-known celebrities, taken from album covers and magazine articles, were originally created to idolize women as objects of desire.
I rebuild them from that “old society standard”, layer upon layer, to bring out some of the myriads of elements that were once omitted and forgotten, to showcase each woman’s multifaceted psyche as driven, dynamic, beautiful and seductive but above all powerful, as all women are!

The series has further evolved into light-boxes that are meticulously worked on both sides of the canvas, to reveal numerous details when using different color lights.... thus mirroring life. This artwork features two hummingbirds of which one is visible only when the light is on. Hummingbirds symbolize love, joy, playfulness, good luck and adaptability.
