Дух и материя В своите произведения аз поставям Човекът, като център на търсенията ми. Човешкото съзнание и връзката му с тялото и мястото му в битието. Чрез средствата на живописта, графиката и рисунката аз пресъздавам едни застинали моменти, спрели, като кадър на филмова лента изобразяваща преливащите едни в други противоречиви чувства на агония, екстаз и напрежение в една телесна безтегловност. Момента на сриване на илюзиите. Искам да внуша за мощта на човека и крехкостта на неговата реалност. Ние всички в даден момент ставаме жертва на своята реалност, несъобразена и егоистично построена. Илюзорната реалност ни забулва в омая, поставя ни на мост без парапети лишавайки ни от упора. Търся да открия и запечатам разнообразието на тeзи реалности и мига на осъзнаване за съществуването им. vi

Artist Statement In my art works I put the individual person in the center of my reflection - the human consciousness and the connection with the body, thus it's place in life. Through the use of mediums like painting, drawing and printmaking, I recreate still moments, as if a frozen scene from a movie. Though this I represent the merging of contradicting feelings of agony and ecstasy – and the tension in a weightless body. The moment that illusions collapse. I want to illustrate the power of man and the frailty of the reality surrounding him. We all fall victim to the inconsistent realities that we selfishly make for ourselves. The illusion of reality entrances us in a spell. It places us on a bridge with out a railing . It deprives us of steadiness and support. I search to find and capture the diversity of those realities and the moment of realization in their existence.
