ARTIST STATEMENT: I focus on the relationship between the self and the collective consciousness, and on our perception of reality–that might not be real. I search to understand what bonds and what controls us; the power of faith; the inner universe; the multiverse; and how these things are connected. My research encompasses ancient history, psychology, cosmology and quantum physics, and I translate it into large scale installations, drawings, paintings, videos or multimedia immersive experiences. Each medium communicates what the other doesn’t. In my large scale installations (built with white strings that glow under UV light), for instance, the viewers are invited to participate by walking within the maze-like-geometric-structure, while making navigational decisions. Quantum physics claims that the choices we haven’t made in this universe happened in a parallel one, and my installations depict portals, open to alternate realities and hidden dimensions. My acrylic paintings have textures, scratches and layers upon layers of ink. Like scars, they relate to memories that built the self. With my videos, on the other hand, I tell stories in the pace of dreams, using symbols and fragmenting time. And in a multimedia immersive experience, each medium is important for the understanding of the narrative in its totality. By engaging with the artwork, the observer collects information as though completing a puzzle. Despite the distinct feelings associated with each piece, the work relies on symbolism and geometry, for their visual simplicity that holds complex meanings.
