I am moved by the definition of change and the landscape as a metaphor of my constantly changing personality. I think about nature as a wider concept, one that reflects the moving energies in a specific space and the interactions and clash of ideas. As a foreign, I tend to adapt and change very easily, because I belong to different cultures. I paint abstract forms that represent multiple parts of a whole personality, that together make a constructed identity, sometimes global, sometimes specific. The viewer should be able to see how different these forms are, and also feel the tension between them, how they pull into different directions and create a flow of explosive reactions.
