I consider the act of painting a live process, where the works are included in the dimension of time, which generates changes, and thus devoid of the status of a still object of art. By applying different media as well as performances and actions, I attempt to breach the borders of painting itself. Organic substances of destructive character and new media I apply in my work make my art conceptual in the message it intends to bring, at the same time anchoring it to the world represented.
