Artist Statement
I feel attracted to forms that seem simple, but hide unfolding levels of complexity. Raw, coarse, unframed physical space filled with moving and unclassified forms — those are objects and metaphors of the unconscious.

Once I started with common visual shooting, my interested started to develop into a search of relations between subjective processes and internal dynamics of space. Processes when repressed, invisible or something out of any significance suddenly ooze on surface of visible reality.

Photography is a handy and flexible material with indefinite boundaries, which is suitable at its best to talk of things that do not have any name.
