Artist Statment

My work is concerned with  the relations between the institutionalized and private, personal and public spaces. I’m observing the non places that exist in between familiar architectural surroundings, trying to figure out whether they are opposing themselves over those who are using them or able to contain them, Can I find serenity in those environments or only Social Alienation. This contradiction between secured and threatening  feeling in our close environments  is motivated by my desire for values of beauty and aesthetics.
