“My work often transcends between abstract and figurative. Forms and figures take shape intentionally or by accident.” - the artist
My work in general reflects a strong and powerful relationship to landscape and nature, this includes city-specific landscapes. I am a nomadic artist, I let the country or the town where I set my studio affect my work. The environment and surrounding of this new area, have considerable influence and impact on my production. I let the lieu become my muse.
I am a multidisciplinary artist, although I have used painting and photography in the last years quite extensively. Textile art is also a media I cherish. My work often transcends between abstract and figurative. Forms and figures take shape intentionally or by accident. However, I find that a less literal and more abstract approach to composition produce paintings or works of art more intensely imaginative. It keeps me further away from esthetical and intellectual decisions.
With my camera, I collected and collated the textures, colours, shapes and qualities of sceneries in the different artistic residencies I attended and translated what I learned from these different places into materials and making.
In this collection, you will find visual research of Budapest’s architecture and Brazil’s Atlantica Forest. Each piece evolves through a process of fragmentation and reconstruction. Patching and layering of fabrics forms a background for stitch; this style of work reflects my interest in collage. I am inspired by the potential of overlaps, intersections and anomalies.
