I am inspired and fascinated by the interior geometry of the organic, the concentric patterns of tree rings or the cellular structure of a plant when observed under a microscope.
The continuous investigation of the printing processes using oil inks on various surfaces, such as fabric, paper and Plexiglas led me to the creation of 3D monoprints. In the new body of work I fuse the traditional medium of printmaking with a contemporary approach that transforms two-dimensional monoprints into intricately layered three-dimensional multimedia works as well as into kinetic sculptures and installations, activated either by the viewer physically turning a handle or simply moving around the gallery space.
A fascinating work emerges where the eye-deceiving forms and patterns, both monochromatic and brilliantly hued, create a new reality where the external and the internal, the organic and the geometric, become one in a balanced yet playful composition.
