“The contextual background of painting, in fact the very limitation of the canvas itself, is central to my artistic practice. Rejecting the idea of an per-existing subject, a visual vocabulary emerges from the technical structure of the image carrier itself.
This nation of image production demands observation. Engaging with contemporary approaches to image-making, each cycle of work connects to the anticipation of formal elements of painting. Gradually translated into visual material, the conceptual substance itself, is processed into sculptural compositions.”
