Yet, they were those walls surrounding me,
united, smooth, dark-colored
Yet, they were those walls and the silence (pause)

Empty galleries, stairs, paintings in dark colors,
mirrors
False doors, false columns, false outputs

…And the gardens as anything else, were deserted (silence)

Artist statement

I mostly use painting and installations as main tools to convey my subject matters themes revolving around the human condition within our political, ecological  and cultural realities.

My artistic process is an interplay between intuitive and more concrete aspects.

My paintings are based on photographs, private or found, archival images and stills of settings from films. I stage installations in which the art works play off against each other. New “meaning constructions” are created in which fact and fiction, the past and the present, personal and collective memories are woven together.
