    These bullet paintings take on a visceral approach to the politics of violence, focusing on the dynamics of infliction and trauma, as well as depicting traces and spaces, a mental place where empathy translates into healing.

    My “ballistic” medium grew from personal traumas, experienced, converging with collective history. My work embraces influences from different cultures taking on an investigative approach to place and time, in relation to a sense of self. My works have used more than 30,000 spent shotgun and brass bullets of different calibers – wondering if any among those I have used has taken a life.
