The heart of my paintings is the intention to combine and to forge a bond with the aim to find an in-between. Between abstraction and figuration, painting and drawing, geometric and organic elements, chaos and order, reality and dream. Rooted in abstraction and narrative, most of my current paintings are the results of my interest in perception; what is real, true and important to each one of us; the flexibility and elasticity of reality; how we remember and how we forget; how we lose, hide, destroy, keep, make up, reorder and find new solutions.
During the work on my paintings, I compress and develop collected elements through selecting, reordering, replenishing, overlaying, distorting, disguising or deleting them. I never completely know how my paintings will look in the end. My interest lies in how they develop through the painting process, in seeing what materialises. It is a process of creation, reaction and reflection. A flexible process, where plans can change or coincide. I am obsessed with the act of painting itself and with colour.
My recent works are mostly series, where one work grows out of the previous one, or they are connected to one another through composing elements. The running dog,for example, is a series of five paintings each showing the same image but, by the time of painting, every single one becomes an alteration of the previous one, getting more abstract, just like vanishing memories do.
