Artist Statement
My attention is focused on the human as an inseparable part of nature. Humans are part of the eternal cycle of nature, a component of the body cells of the world; but only man becomes as a dominate force of nature. Man, in the process of evolution has achieved the highest level of intellectual and emotional development and, by this process is able to create beauty and horror. I have always found the subject of human value intriguing, its desire for domination and sense of power over the world is interesting to me on an intellectual and personal level. My practice attempts to explore sense of the world and understand human nature through metaphysical investigation. My artwork is an exploration of antagonism human nature which consists of contradictory components and determines the order of the world. I draw inspiration from the past and present, with conscious and subconscious elements in order to explore human nature and to take a closer look at issues of identity, memory and existence
