My declaration of the artist is an anti-declaration. I do not consider myself an artist. In my opinion, it is important to emphasize this.
Most likely - I'm just a researcher and seeker. First, I am searching for myself and my place in this country, in the world, in art.
I used to look for myself in other fields - journalism, public activities, texts, but the most successful tool was collage.
In my work, I explore topics that are close to me at the time of creation. Now it is a topic of separation, self-understanding
and personality formation. I reserve the opportunity to change the direction of my artistic research depending on the relevance
and current interest. I often create commissioned collages. They are personalized, dedicated to other people.
But in addition to depicting individual characteristics, I also show my vision of this person.
A collage about another is how I look at them. Who do I see in a particular person that I feel next to them,
what I want to say about them. My collages are just me, made up of different pieces, colors and shapes…
