As an artist I don’t seek anything, rather feel many things persecute me, ideas haunt me and an uncontrollable need inevitably leads me to do things I do, as a vital instinct.
I’m introspective and contemplative, there is a sense of solitude, stasis, silence and sobriety in my art.
I like to reflect psychological and emotional aspects of human condition from a personal and even intimate context.
