Artist's Statement

My work balances between painting, and installation. Time, nature, energy and connections are the main aspects of my art research, the everything which is in between but not visible, Centre of my work is the action, fragmented, dissolved into abstraction. The unicity of the colours  and forms found in nature are my main source of inspiration . Using colour as a language,  each artwork is permeated with intense and vibrant energy  .
