About art works / statement of creativity:
I work with an experimental printmaking that transforms the print into a spatial idea and questions the state of graphic art today: its position, significance, permutations, and application. This is a contemporary way for the print to undergo a metamorphosis in which it nevertheless retains its main characteristics—a print that goes outside convention but still cultivates its connection with traditional printmaking culture, a print that goes outside the margins but tries with all its strength not to be marginalised.
The prints, in compositions of various formats and shapes, invite collaboration with the space, the material, the forms and themes I deal with (is always connected with fullness/emptiness, presence/absence). Here we are talking about a double coding that, in a curious way, has the ultimate effect of both connecting and confronting.
