I am committed to creating work that radiates positive vibes and deep contemplation.
My artistic aspiration is rooted in respect to Nature and Human beings.
I am curiously observing the surrounding world through my art. I love experimenting as
I adapt environmentally clean techniques, utilizing non-toxic materials and methods in printmaking, painting, and sculpture.
My inspiration and research are drawn from the works of Hilma af Klint, Kazimir Malevich, Vasiliy Kandinsky, and Alex Gray. I believe that quantum entanglement, as explained by contemporary scientists, is a broader phenomenon that embraces the whole universe, thus proving the interconnectedness of all things. Artists can link yet undiscovered qualities of the elements and draw parallels in visual language using shapes, colors, and symbols of the complex dynamics of the world we can merely perceive. I am interested in the trajectories of movement and light - the light on the surfaces of sculpture and painting and the inner light that great works of art emanate. The frequency of such invisible radiation determines the quality of the overall impact of the work of art, along with the luminosity of the surface and the vibrancy of colors and textures.
My process is intuitive and so are my findings.
The unknown is what inspires me and keeps me going.
