    Drawings for me serve as a portal for the release of emotions. I broadcast states. A monochrome series is emerging, and although it’s not very close to me, I don’t see these drawings in color. I will definitely try to recreate this black and white and paint with all the richness of textures and layers that are inherent in my style.

    It is difficult to describe in words the whole range of emotions. It is good that there is an artistic language. Specifically, these conditions are felt physically in the chest, very unpleasant sensations, emptiness, burning, tingling. The inside is turned upside down. But at the same time it is about the deep and emotional, that everyone will see their own.
