VIEW IN MY ROOM
This composition containing multiple pieces can be arranged in a number of ways. It consists of pieces and motifs we usually see in still lifes. The masterpieces of Flemish or French Rococo painting reached the world in tapestry form in the absence of good reproductions. They reached all corners of the world while the original concept, line of thought and aesthetic were lost. These are the pieces I refer to when I mention the provincial transcripts of larger cultural centres. They reached us in this form as well. I find these pieces more interesting than their originals. The staring point of my work is often a smaller porcelain piece or a Gobelin, in which the colour white is dominant. Porcelain is white, as is the background of the Gobelins. Thus, I also use a lot of white in my works. The title of the piece may be considered provocative due to the use of the word “cocaine”. The word, however, is necessary for its sound. It’s also there because of the colour white, as both cocaine and porcelain are white.In this context, the word “cocaine” refers to the whiteness of porcelain.

My work is closely connected to the region I live in and to its history. The period between the second half of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century is considered to be one of the golden ages of the region. The most visible evidence of this period observed today can be found in architectural buildings (public buildings, churches and private residences) that remain. The evidence of these styles was not only visible on the outside of these buildings and homes. The decoration of the interior, the furniture and everyday personal items also reflected the inhabitants’ social status. Aside from masterpieces, one could also find paintings, tapestries, decorative items, utensils, etc., which would today be considered “kitsch,” as they were often the adapted versions and provincial transcriptions of works and items from larger cultural centres. I make allusions to pseudo-versions of these items in my work. My attitude toward them is complex. At times I treat them with melancholy by projecting utopian views of the past, the “good old days.” Anachronisms can also be found in my work. They are present with copious amounts of cynicism – many of the older pieces seem humorously naive. I place them in a contemporary frame, joining them to elements of pop- and street-art.
