ABOUT
An extreme similarity can be found between art and the “Pavlovian reflex”, since contact with a work of art implies a certain expectation. Additionally, reality takes place according to every person’s perception and it can not be universal, so the ability to play with a fixed identity, gives me the opportunity to renegotiate reality.
The fictional and experimental universe that I try to create by showing only fragments establishes a connection between conspicuous reality and personal imagination. In my opinion an artist should “highlight the tracks” for the viewers and not give a clear solution of the work presented. The image is fractured using a technique similar to the collage. The „rupture” is intended to amplify the state of uncertainty and to force the viewer to use his imagination to draw conclusions.
