Figurative and non-figurative painting and photo experimentation characterizes my working method as an artist. The central topic of my artistic program is personality, and the problem of representing an identity. In my art I explore the way of perceiving a person and the representation’s relation to reality. I summarize my thoughts about the changing function of portraiture in unconventional paintings.The investigation of the relation between painting and photo is one of the main aspects of my work. As a painter I use photography as a medium and as a reference as well.  I deal with the photos where representational defects appear, and the medium’s ambivalent relation to reality becomes visible. For me these digital distortions evoke the sensual nature of painting.
