Artist's Statement:
The sources of my inspiration are many: an appreciation for personalities and the human scale; in particular,I love to look for traces of the people who came before and clues about what they did there and why.Journeys are an integral part of my artistic inspiration. The Mediterranean and Adriatic atmosphere that pervades my work comes from the summers I spent on the French and Yugoslav coasts. I am always intrigued by the human cultural elements and visual stimulation that I encounter. I find that every place and culture reveals its beauty to me through everyday life.I like to use symbols in my art work and while creating my personal iconography.The symbols are clues to many aspects of my life,but my paintings usually start with a color idea,then evolve into compositions in which color is the primary subject.I work in collage,various media on paper and canvas,mixing everything possible together in a visual format for public display. Much attention is given to the surface texture by adding different materials,carving scratching, gluing...and thus creating a visual dialogue. I complete my work using drawing techniques and whatever else it takes to communicate my intended vision.
