Between Lightness and darkness 2020

PERSONAL STATEMENT

My interest and inspiration are based on exploring and researching patterns of nature and human. Matrix of life is engraved in our bodies, rivers and oceans, veins of plants, veins of animal bodies, layers of ice and soil, concentric circles of a drop or an earthquake, …When one understands the principles of life, we become to understand the principles of living. In my artistic research and work I am trying to present nature vs. human as a “passive” actions to make my public understand we do not own our life’s, in contrary we owe it to the planet.
My work was based on fine arts, transformed to spatial installations and performances, through the study of scenography. Therefore, I am interested to explore and present my work in different media and techniques.
Personally, I am soil and water therefore my work is based on exploration of woods, plants and water.

“We are all part of the same universal pattern, therefore a matrix of life.”
