I have proven to be an artist with an unusually deep consciousness and with great willpower to create.To describe my art with a classic definition of painting would not be enough. One of the reasons is that I usee a variety of media which mix together. I correctly draw conclusions from those experiments and implements them into my work.Distinct, organic spots of paint which create discreet physiological allusions, splash and splatter in various proportions on the unprimed, fine cotton canvas changing the work into a piece of art which becomes a place of nearly per formative action.

My language can be gentle and full of allusions as well as very literal. My painting proves that art is not about building forms, but rather about showing the forces which govern them.

When it comes to the composition, I often choose one dominant element, a form, which take on all the impact and draws attention to itself. The way it is constructed and positioned among other elements conveys a strong desire to explain all doubts.

Sometimes, there are many ‘dominating’ elements, but they do not compete with each other thanks to clear rules of hierarchy. My works communicate a difficult range of topics such as feminism, sexuality, the existence of a relationship with myself and with the world.
