About

The inspiration of my artwork comes from the profound experience of life, where creation is an eternal process, and a permanent transformation and growth. Real-life observation is the main source of my ideas. My artwork are replications of the shapes, shadows, and other visual sensations I experience in the world around me. Most of my artwork is non-representational, yet deeply rooted in nature.

In my artwork I explore concepts of impermanence, perception, form and balance through physical movement of the work itself. A lot of my work exhibits an overt sense of play, where the viewer can interact in a ludic, game-like context, like: kaleidoscopic image, puzzles and mazes. Often my inspiration comes from the constant random patterns in nature, like the clouds in the sky. Others are inspired by impermanence in life situations, like: changes of beliefs, memories and relocation. Randomness and chance is a central part of my work, I see chance as a helper in the process.

For about the past ten years I developed a body of work mainly on paper that is a three-dimensional montage, a conjoining of parts designed and modeled in various shapes, inside envelopes or boxes of translucent paper. These shapes are unfixed with random placement. Some of these pieces are one color, which allows one to observe how light interacts and completes the work. Others have print outs of illustrations, photographs and even writings that became deconstructed images, where I explore concepts of perception and impermanence of ideas, memories and nature in general. The harmonies and tensions arise from different exchanges between colors, patterns, positive-negative space, geometric and organic shapes.

Most of my artwork has a free and spontaneous composition, although the product is a careful series of aesthetic decisions, where chance partially disconnects me from the resulting work.
