“I am an abstract artist and therefore I perceive the words as a complication of art, they prevent us from creating a direct, pure contact with the audience. Words always have meanings and each person reads them differently. I would like to exhibit my objects even without giving them a name. I appeal to the sensual and intuitive side of the viewer. I want one to look at my work with his heart. For me, art appears when words end. Art is my tool when I want to talk about inexplicable things. I believe that with the help of abstraction one can speak wider and louder. The theme with which I work most often is society, society and relations between people. I want to live in a free, safe society. Where there is a place for empathy, care and humanity. ”
