Painting for me is an exploration of how the fluidity of human experience operates and is stored in the still image.
I explore the expression of emotions and desires of indefinite meaning through painting, in which I combine concrete writing and abstract forms. I am interested in the landscape, territory, daily myth, memory and writing, but my work also includes my own imagination and description of images, objects and words. I use still images to store time and create space on the flat canvas. Painting connects the picture and various openings and intersections that appear on the outside of the paintings by the artist’s gestures and re-arrangements. The space created in paintings is not a container for me, but a way to transfer from the subject to the relationship between subjects, as well as the result of a search for textures and structures which are normally hidden under the surface of real scenery and substance.
