Soil, Water, Air, Fire
The artist mentions:
“In my work, I am interested in capturing through the materiality that wears out, landscapes that I stepped on as a volunteer firefighter in the past decade.
Scorched earth, lunar horizons, extreme temperatures, landscape non-specific but also timeless, which for an observer may be sea, for another earth.
On this borderline, I create landscapes in which primary and non-primary materials converse, amalgam of painting and ceramics, engraving and burning, breaking and redefining the fragments in order to deepen their understanding.”
