“I'm interested in the human way of giving meanings to different things. It is sometimes really surreal how we give value for something and belittle another. Few years ago I started to pay attention to news and pictures about animals in media. I collected these pictures and together they formed a strange series on the wall of my studio. These animals were not wild. They were some kind of material of human creativity. This series of pictures started to inspire my work.
Animal figure is a recurring theme in my paintings. Still I feel these animal figures represent more us people and our relationship to nature. Animals are humanized or seen as objects, trophies and decoration, what ever serves the purpose of that moment. In my paintings flora and fauna is often in a pile or in some kind of arrangement made by man.”
