                    Lives and works in Berlin

 

My work is focused on Human Beings, their position in the contemporary world and their interpersonal relations. I observe them from different perspectives and am making my own, nuanced take. Similarly to Francis Bacon, who said: "I would like my pictures to look as if a human being had passed between them, like a snail leaving its trail of the human presence... as a snail leaves its slime", I too am attempting to reach the human essence in my works. For that reason, I am trying to paint my experiences in life as faithfully as I can, which lead me to an important realization: the more true I remain to myself, the closer to the other one I get.


I want to give people a reason to pause, to reflect, to take a deep look into themselves. That is where the feelings are and that is what links us together. There we are the most vulnerable and closest to each other. Dealing with inner worlds interest me - a visualization of the invisible.


In all my works I use both figuration and abstraction. My aim is to give a few directions to the viewer, without revealing the final destination or becoming too illustrative. Figures are often appearing from and then disappearing back into an abstract space, which causes the feeling of the constant flow within the painting. The space, however, I don't consider to be a classical background. For me, it represents the internal of the figures. The spaces and the figures in most of my works are one being.
