Artist’s Statement

My work deals with visual obsevations, connections between things in life, ethics and eternity. I use wide range of techniques, installations, photography, moving image and site specific work. Glass, light, shadow and reflections are building blocks of my work. Spaces, animals and surfaces that separate us are important elements as well.
