Selected Works

Artists Statement
Human ties and their complexity are the basis of my works. Whether they are imposed relationships, such as the family you were born into, or relationships you choose for yourself. The ties with the people around us defines us, builds us and sometimes are a burden.

I am intrigued to understand where in the relationship the one begins and the other ends? where is the limit of emotion? where the limit of the body? The lines are very blurry. The detachment of the characters in my paintings, which sometimes exist in a vacuum and are detached from a familiar and material environment, emphasizes the randomness and transience of human existence that preoccupies me greatly. The impossible gap between painting and emotion is the force that drives my work.

Sometimes I wish to narrow the gap and sometimes I wish to deepen the dissonance.

‘Unknown People’ Series
Untitled figures and faces, detached from the environment in which they exist. Their detachment leaves them floating in space, isolated and rootless. It seems that, like soap bubbles, they can disappear at any given moment. Is that so? Or rather their own solistial existence in space independent of anything and being embedded on the page as stamps of people makes them eternal?
