ARTIST STATEMENT: My work is inspired by fragments and details of images with various textures, transparencies, and unique colors. I try to reveal hidden and potential meanings by combining techniques such as manual and digital photography, photo-collage, sewing, and painting.
My goal is to create a dynamic tension between the straightforward representation of the subject, though formally deconstructed, and the abstract composition of the whole.
By focusing on intimate detail and the specific character of a chosen subject, I question and probe its beauty in order to reveal, reconsider, or condemn its clichés. This approach encourages the viewer to take the time to discover the imagery’s possibilities and meanings.
