Artist’s Statement

What I want to Express

"In Stone Age" figures and signs were made on rock walls, and the same theme was repeated for an increased effect. These images were closely related to the way of living and survival.

In a way I see my images as some kind of rock paintings, in them I carry an inner dialogue and send messages, images are part of my thinking . That figure, that group formation is what I want to express.

Networks of plants, animals and humans are placed in different entities in my works.

When I make an image I have a desire to have an impact on people. The impact is in the image itself, in the forms, the rhythms and the harmony, in "the pleasure" of the image.
