In a multidimensional world, art is one of the forms of expression that bring people closer together, beyond the borders of different languages.
Common human emotions of pain, sorrow and loneliness, that affect all of us, is often a subtle theme in my works, portraying or showing our confusion and suffering, that goes hand in hand with our daily life situations and experiences. The approach connects us to the melancholy of the perishable, the transient and ephemeral of our fleeting and passing presence as humans. Thematically, works are found within a conceptual tradition, or as representations of emotional landscapes.
