Artist Statement -



In all of my current work I basically use the same technique with a few variations of the materials. I approach works on paper in the same way as works on canvas using different kinds of paper mostly transparent and creating layers by juxtaposing various qualities of paper and colour.
During this process I start working on the composition which sometimes can be covered up and later again be revealed somewhat changed. This way the work is kept fluent, continually changing.
Inks, acrylic paint, oil crayons, watercolour pencils, charcoal are used to achieve desired effects.

A few words about the subject
For many years I've been painting figures of women. These women have been changing and growing at the same time I did, expressing things I felt.
There are different series of works presented here but their subject is relative as the main theme deals with mirrors.
A mirror may not actually be depicted in every work but what is pictured can be seen as a mirror image, even as an image of the spectator

2000, Anny Balta Gallery
“…Female figures seem to participate in a silent drama played in familiar spaces. A landscape is seen through an open window, in the background giving a feeling of freedom against the dead-end of closed space circulating the women.”


2003, Ianos Art Gallery
