My work is surreal. Symbolizations, implications, and disguised up-drawings of memories, dominate. I have been affected by hyper-realism and the Dada movement. Lately I have been experimenting with mix-media techniques.
My inspiration comes from unsatisfaction. From love. From small, apparently indifferent details which will turn into the whole universe of the artist if you isolate each of them…From every barely noticeable thing. Taste, sound, felling, crash and crumble of everyday people. From memories.
Most of the times, I already see the project in front of my eyes before even starting to plan it. Like a vision. I almost always write down the possible take, because my ideas are elusive and I sometimes forget them. From that moment on, I stage the pictures inside my head for months. It’s a creative procedure, it demands theatrical skills, even the search and purchase of objects which are necessary for the creation of the scenery.
Art doesn’t give you answers, it creates questions is my moto.
