My Sweet Regulations

 

Ever since I studied law at the University, I have been fascinated by the absolute power of financial and geopolitical regulations. Over the years, I created series of paintings and videos on the subject of the dehumanizing tendencies of global regulations. The ensuing disconnect between legislative norms and reality drove me to question why we are so compliant to let the regulatory system to take over in disregard of our own hard-wired survival instinct.

 

Laws of nature are replicated by organized entities without compromise. Nature is replaced by structured societies taking over the individual. These societies are self-expanding and ignore our personal well being. A white rabbit and animal figures appear repeatedly in much of my artwork to link the remaining piece of nature to mankind. The white rabbit’s terrifying persona symbolizes globalization at all levels.
