Artist Statement

My work is about memories: it explores reminiscing and the flow of time through the constantly changing landscape of memories. My aim is to turn memories into shapes and bursts of colour in an attempt to save fleeting moments.

Most times, memories appear fused, blending into each other - confusing or imagining details, ignoring their chronological adjacency. As a whole, memories occupy a symbolic space juxtaposed on the general background of being. I find that connecting different textures, shapes and colours resembles the way our most treasured memories of places and people are being stored and recalled: rarely whole and linear, mostly rearrangements of contiguous fragments.

With some memories being fragile and evanescent, I sometimes feel like I am partly embarking on my very own quest of searching for lost time.
