The theme of most of my work is about the human condition, and thoughts and emotions that bind us as human beings. My intention is not to execute my work literally and explain too much but rather give a glimpse of the story. Similar to a candid photograph, this allows the viewer to call upon their own life experiences to draw a conclusion about the piece. My work originates from my subconscious, I allow my thoughts and emotions to flow and develop as I work. Sculpture is my passion, in it I have found a place for my soul to live.
My art tells my story. It’s a story of my world, of my thoughts and emotions entwined in an internal dialogue. And some of it can be expressed only through painting.
It is incredible, how fairy-tales I heard once-upon-a-time, in my childhood actually influenced my life and defined who I am. As an adult, I still believe in happy endings and that good will prevail.
The Enchanted Pencil is one of the stories I remember very clearly. This special pencil could materialize anything drawn, such as doors that lead to any place imaginable. I realized this story has become hardwired in me. And now my paintings are those doors. Doors that lead me to my own world of peace and harmony. A world where dragons, wyverns, basilisks and dwarfs roam free. Where life has a deeper meaning which I do not yet comprehend but searching for this meaning is a fascinating process.
