Across painting and installation, I try to articulate poetic, inter-subjective dialogues. I create diagrams of fragmented thoughts and emotions that operate fluidly between the future and the past, which I want to bring to the now. I am interested in confronting my personal space with cultural constructs, deriving inspirations from myriad sources: psychoanalysis, linguistics, pop culture and the art history - recently particularly fascinated by the horror genre, art deco and socialist ornaments as well as renaissance frescoes.

My works mirror painterly sensitivity defined by vitality, affect and unknowingness. I highlight physicality and psychology of the painterly gesture, wondering whether the image has a body; and if yes – is it a social, physical or psychological one. I address these aspects by playing with identification, switching roles and projecting a gaze between a producer, a subject and a viewer; as well as testing their relationships. I understand the painterly-material-space in terms of speech, and I’m drawn to a personal residue on vocalizations – manipulations of the facts, mistakes, fuzziness, memory and capability - apposing them with clearer and more objective passages.
