My works have been constantly searching for the relation between nature and art. In a game of contraries I attempted to point out the artful in opposition to what is considered natural. What do a picture of nature and a painting have in common? From pictures of landscapes, people, etc. and doing a digital work, I tried to find inspiration in the picture's pixel and made some compositions starting from that reference on. The result has been digital paintings which are in a way a return, through different means to painting. Each human being has a vocabulary to express himself in the best possible manner, in my case colour and geometry are of steady concern. Thereby, in my video as well as in my photograph works I start from reality to convey a different world.
I feel a particular interest in composing and expressing myself through colour, trying not to leave anything to chance.
