I feel that my art is an uninhibited territory for me.
It's kind of like pulling the dinner table cloth from under expensive porcelain, and watching a big colorful mess taking place, playing with the velocity of time and watching the different stages of a creative disarray. When on still frame, all stages look almost neat and coherent. It's that brute result by innocently curious means and forces, that drives me to explore different visual directions.
Drawing is always there, even if it's somewhere underneath, or never even materialized. It's more of a perpetual conceptual state in which I find myself.
I construct my work around many layers, some apparently ironic and skin deep and some that have profound connections to my own very private experiences. They are always intertwined and their succession never follows a strict pattern.
The aria in which I find my subject matter includes the oddity sector of psychological and physical typologies, the dream kings that are cleverly camouflaged in our everyday life, verbal and visual ironies, the profoundly human with all it's intricate emotions and Freudian slips.
Most of the time I feel the need for characters, faces. To me, there are always faces behind notions and concepts. I'm just picking them out of a crowd.
Writing and text is a very important component of the whole body of works. I feel the need for words as a subtle hint towards the main idea of each work, that I never try to fully reveal.
All around, my works are thoughts and emotions turned from the inside out, like you would a stuffed teddy bear.
