In my recent mixed media works I’m using untraditional materials and creative process which is not usually associated with painting. They are hybrids of visually accurate representation and physical process of ripping, breaking and construction. Ordinary objects and silhouettes become transformed into precious carriers of experience and emotion. The surface is sealed with a coating of acrylic medium for decay resistance. But metaphorically the process of applying layers of the medium represents my personal layered world where different places and cultures are connected to each other.
