Artist’s Statement

2.nd of July 2011

"At times I think about disappearings. In my dreams the characters are surrounded by white weightlessness. I read stories about the Bermuda Triangle and ponder where is the starting poind/ end poind of the world. While drawing, I have dreamt of adventures in space, mountains, colorful triangular huts and getting lost in the purple haze."
