The main area of my interest is process, changes and time. I am an artist working on the border of the media: painting-performance-video art. I create performative (changing over time), sensual, haptic, processual and tactile painting. I rely on human emotions, subconsciousness and senses, thanks to which I reach the deep layers of reception and interpretation among recipients who often engage in my works. My actions go beyond the object into the space of the body, touch, taste and a whole range of senses. The observation of processuality is the main area of research for me. My paintings are sensual, tactile, soft, cracked, rough - like the body. The creative act itself is also important to me, the way, not only the goal, time, not only the object, the reception and not only the idea.
I am inspired by uncharted areas, crossing boundaries, gaining satisfaction from small experiences, creating extreme and emotional situations on the verge of endurance of the senses, subtle and disarming at the same time.
Man and his time are the basis of all actions.
