To me, painting is meditation. I paint flashing images of my own memories, real and imaginary stories. My pictures consist of these film still-like fragments. I examine myself as a young Eastern European woman through these scenes connected rather by associations than by a progress in time. The subject matter of my works is mainly my existential anxiety in the current political and cultural context. Details are important to me as is the intense and accurate observation of a sight, and while elaborating them I relive the evoked images.
The source of the way I choose the separated stills is film montage where a course of action is described by many different shots in a sequence. My other source is the painting of the Middle Ages and the Early Renaissance that despite its cool and static compositions alludes to a background story through the eye-catching details.
