  • Artist Statement

    The way to my paintings was long and full of obstacles. For many years I’ve been learning drawings and graphics. I was expressing myself with black and white. A line was more important than a color for me. I was attracted by black because it could express what I wanted to say in the most simple and uncomplicated way. My paintings tell the stories. They are related to music that I’ve heard or poems that I’ve read, faces that I saw somewhere and will never see again, to my dreams, fears and memories. I work in series. One of them, In the forest, deals with the ambiguous and unspoken. My works are in between figuration and abstraction. They address this feeling of uncertainty when looking at something and not being sure if it’s true or not, seen or imagined. I’m inspired by beauty. By Rembrandt drawings and Japanese woodcuts. I’m inspired by the fragrance, which can barely be smelled, by the past from which I want to escape but it won’t let me forget. And finally by art itself.
