“Already in my first stages as an artist, I found myself interested in the process of the end of life. Not in death itself, but usually in the last moments and at the end of the road, that stage where I look into myself and observe how life has passed until now and how I treat those moments that will accompany me into the next stage. How do people deal with the last moments of your life? A subject that I focused on in the project “At Death’s Door” in which I delved into the human need to continue fighting for life even when it is clear that it is already over. Why do people continue to fight and insist on living even though they already understand that this is the end? Where does this blind hope come from that sometimes leads nowhere?”

“This psychological process is both strange and interesting to me. This process also produces the fear of the day after. What will happen to us after we die? Do we just lie underground or will we pay for our actions that we all seem to have to pay for? That is what I dealt with in the project on “Dante”, where I did not photograph what would happen to us in hell, but what leads us to commit those sins that are forbidden to us and whether there is anything improper about them. After all those forbidden sins are nothing more than normal human conditions and there is nothing improper about them. The question arises, why are they even defined as sins?”

“When I observe from the side I think that most of my work (most of my work is in the studio where I can control things is more comfortable and I prefer it) deals with my personal feelings and my personal dealings on a daily basis and less with observing the environment (although in the latest project “The Space In Between” which is still in the process of. It seems that I observe the existing space but also in this case the observation process is on the personal space). Even in cases where it seems that I am not focusing on the end of life and death, I deal with mental fatigue and mental exhaustion“.

“Over the years I could not help but reach a situation where I was working at different jobs to finance myself, the family that came and my possibility to do art. The ability to exhibit in galleries is not so easy because the costs are greater than I thought and although I am engaged in art. But it is because I cannot do otherwise. There is something that we will always “be there” and must get out otherwise I get suffocated. “

There is a feeling over the years that comes and goes that sometimes nothing progresses and I do not really get anywhere. From this feeling that comes up every now and then the road is leading me to nowhere. This series of works shows many roads that lead nowhere, no matter where I walk and which road, I choose it does not lead me to that “breakthrough” that during my art studies it seemed as if as soon as I finished my studies it would happen. In the end, I keep walking into nowhere.”
