This series reflect an amalgamation of thoughts and dreams that have been dwelling in my consciousness for the past few years. Debris of memories, associations, historical references... I have shifted from monochromatic painting to color in recent times. You can see this transition in the collection for Spotte. Sun-dried pale hues are turning vivid and saturated. That means the life is turning brighter as well!

I love working with unconscious, with the dream world that frequently serves as a reminder of sometimes-elusive existence. It is my second nature to try and unify this polarity. You can trace it in my work: as anonymous urban landscapes start to live a new life, they turn into animated geometric shapes.
