    ART STATEMENT

    For me art is a way to communicate ideas and concepts to an audience.

     

    The different series I came up with until now are dealing with topics that I want to share with the rest of the world and give my understanding of. These include the question of "what is beauty", political questions linked to women's position in the world, the economic gaps between countries and individuals, the universal topic of death and memory, media influence on society and terrorism among others.

    Dylan Thomas once wrote about poetry that "a good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone's knowledge of himself and the world around him", and to my mind this is art's purpose.
