In my artistic work I deal with internal and external structures that correlate with each other. Natural forms overlap clear constructions, a flower winds around a fence and fine lines swallow the intense color behind it. My work is a kind of reflection of our current existence, shaped by mutually complementary contradictions.

I'm trying to capture a sense of the zeitgeist rather than reproducing what I have seen and experienced. My works are more of a conjecture than a fact, invisible instead of visible, doubtful instead of firmly convinced. This is also reflected in the choice of mediums, materials, shape and color. I mainly work with graphite, black watercolor, black and white film and text on paper - all mediums, materials and techniques that are very cautious, but strong in their expressiveness and direct translation.

In addition to my drawing practice (including photography and writing), I started working with natural materials, creating experimental floral arrangements, which are an extension of my previous work, moving into other mediums. While there is something melancholic about my drawings, the floral sculptures (which can also be seen as drawings in a way) create a cheerful contrast, bringing healing and joy into a world of despair. However they also reflect on the fragility of being and thus deal with the thematic of climate change.
