Statement:
For me art is a form of materialization of feelings and impressions, a place where reality mixes with illusion with the help of a human hand. This is an individualized way of telling about the world. The potential that it gives me, is the opportunity to experiment and search for /create my individual language, using unrestricted materials, by creating new forms of expression.
The starting point in my artwork are usually visual and emotional experiences related to the natural world. I try to translate quotes from the world of plants and animals into semi-abstract images. I combine memories and ideas in order to obtain a satisfying object. Sometimes, thanks to the changing fascinations, I refer to the content of cultural achievements from the close and distant surroundings.
My paintings are a connotation to traditional landscape painting. They are a certain metaphor, a compromise between abstraction, my own imagination and the mapping of reality. Basically, it is a mixture of ambiguous, non-literal forms, giving a wide field for interpretation. I translate literal mimicry into a subjective, timeless vision of movement, an extensive frame of reality, an attempt to record the process of looking.
