Statement

 My Artwork is about mystery, privacy, integration with the landscape … Making my work away from customization to represent universal emotions and feelings. Another distinguishing feature is the light, a light of sunset, a cold light …that’s “my light”, I always feel very big attraction that light dim and intimate, subdued, serene, enveloping the stage. Rarely I show faces in my photos. Although I think the main key is what means the word “liminal” (referring to a position of an initial stage of a process, or be on both sides of a boundary or threshold). I mean, are between day and night, between the tranquility and restlessness. Is not a limit. It is a road, a bridge. Nature is everything.
