Location: Studio U4

Medium: Painting

Artist Statement 

I work with colors and surfaces. 

In mixed media of egg tempera and oil on chalk or acrylic grounded canvas and wood, I use colors in points, lines and planes. For me, trying and probing different media is essential for the process of painting and essential for painting itself. Alternating between painting and different print techniques such as monotype, lithograph, aquatint and etching, I develop series of figures, heads, animals, and landscapes. The motives are derived from daily life experiences, i.e., waiting people at the bus stop, animals from the farm I worked on, landscapes of the area I grew up in.
