The Ant Series includes 24 acrylic paintings on canvass. Each of the 60” x 60’’ panels is a part of a sixty foot long painting of an ant wearing a hat. The project was completed in 2008.
Dream on Me
“Dream on Me” is an interactive art projected presented in New York in 2014 at the TEDx Fulton Street event. Made of eight white yoga mats the projects invited the public to sit, walk, sleep or mediate on the mats.
Underneath each mat were two layers of canvas, one covered with blue pigments and the other blank. Each interaction with the mats created imprints on the blank canvas. The canvasses are 72” x 48”.
The Ant is a giant 60 foot-long sculpture is made of translucent nylon fabric airtight balloons mounted on a ton and a half steel structure. It was first displayed at The Invisible Dog Art Center in New York in 2010.
The Ant is based on the poem for Children “La Fourmi” written in 1943 by French Surrealist Robert Desnos, which symbolically describes the trains used by the Nazis for the deportation of Jews and other victims during the Second World War in Europe. In Desnos imaginary language the steam locomotive is an 18-meter long ant wearing a hat.

Palimpsest is a series of acrylic paintings of various sizes created between 2007 and 2012. The acrylic paintings were subjected to various treatments to remove the layers of paint as it was done to parchments in the Middle Ages to remove the ink and reuse the material. Over time the initial layer of ink would resurface.
