I'm exploring themes like identity, sex, gender, feminism issues, as well as myths, religion, psychical archetypes, psychology, various emotional and mental states, and subsonscious in general, using tools of intimate narratives, self-analysis and introspection. And doing so, i prefer bold, dramatic and raw expression. I am fascinated by intense and piercing contradictions and ambivalencies of human psyche, and allured by dychotomy between sexuality and death, dissecting their tango in a dark, macabre, twisted way. Beauty and ugliness, vulgarity and sublime, violence and fragility are eternally boxing in my work which is driven by fears, desires and obsessions, and inspired by fetishes and taboos. I am infatuated by disturbing chaos that boils underneath, and I try to achieve epiphany by visual dealing with innermost demons. Read Less
