On the border between reality and the unreal, ELUSIVE is a visual diary created during a depressive episode. Through its dark landscapes it explores frantic skies filled with crows, quiet backroads populated by trees and cats, reflections and fragments of the city, and damp suburbs where cattle dwell under electric pylons.
These images blur the lines which separate the lucid from the dream-state and the banal from the uncanny. This work is a desperate attempt to catch fleeting moments, reflexively creating images as a means of coping with mental distress.
