|About art:||She handles oil painting, copper plate engraving, dry needle engraving, litography and performance. The painter is impressed by the human extreme emotions (like fear, joyfulness or pleasure) or by the lack of them. The figures devoid of feelings become silent observers who look in a provocative manner on the spectators and again the centuries-old relations between the observer and the object are broken down. Surrealism of the presented situations, stresses the distance of the paintertowards the subject. The paintings desitute the pompous artificiality and pseudoartistic pathos "speak" in a simple and comprehensive language and enforce the spectator to look deeply inside his/her soul. |
