prints

The prints series started in 2011 and is part of a project called "existential mice". They are derived from the drawings of my childhood, and address diverse issues such as the role of artists, gendered interactions, historical inadequacy or prejudices, and feminism.

The series as a whole proposes to view contemporary occurrences and issues from the point of view of vulnerable, less than powerful, but humorous beings.
