Artist Staement: My art is a mirror reflecting my soul and everything related to myself, my thoughts, passions, feelings, identity, and values. It depicts my experiences memories, and my connection to the world as a universal Western-Eastern woman whose goal is to aspire for human peacefulness. My work conjures realistic topics, and expressive figurative paintings. It is radiant and significant for it reflects on important humanistic topics and highlights the power of vivid colours that play a powerful role in the viewers’ soul, memory, emotion and energy. Every single artwork is dramatic and rich with the possibility to evoke feelings of curiosity. The directed perception is human, sensuous, rational, spiritual and eternal. There is a symbolic and philosophical thread in my art that penetrates the human soul, this is where I want my viewers to contemplate the inward visual perceptual communication, to open a channel of conversation and to view the unseen. I reflect on human psychology and perception, conscience, consciousness, subconsciousness, and unconsciousness with a purpose to find hope towards reshaping reality. I admire beauty and embrace it as a part of our life to express positive emotions we experience as a source of joy, and a key to a healthy life. My paintings passionately highlight the beautiful visual qualities of the human mind and soul. Through my art, I explore the world of knowledge, wisdom and optimism, its beautiful creation, its portrayal and depiction. To me, that is the role of art currently we live in, to make us think and hope, to feel and wonder, to smile with no fear, to imagine and dream, to endure and heal, to reveal the truth, and to explore the invisible.
