ARTIST STATEMENT

Art is not the right volume in space, it is not even the exact expression, it’s not a color or shape. Art is a way of thinking, which excludes logic. It is something like meta space existing in the continuum, space that you create, a space where you can live by yourself. You can save yourself there, experiencing the comfort of your own fantasies and necessary needs, while at the same time agonizing after frank confrontation with yourself.
