Like a delicate seed growing into a fine tulip, rain did me nothing but good. After I graduated from art school in 2005 I dove head-first into this world of inventors and creators. And all went well, but then came a time in which the guarantee of income from my artworks disappeared. I balanced on a thin cord for a while, which made me look at my work from an entirely different perspective. My ways changed as I did, and I feel that I am currently re-entering orbit as a whole new artist.

At This Art fair, I want to share this sense of transformation. From one-dimensional works unambiguous in meaning, to “relieved” and enigmatic works. I want to motivate the viewer to focus, to look in ways that makes my art a different experience for everyone. In the last stage of this metamorphosis, I want to create room for more direct interaction with the public by doing performances. (Text: Gabor Veltman).
