These works belong to the series ¨The Weight of Words” and derive from a concept – a word, an image – that attempts to define a generation. In my work I shed the original drama of these concepts and reduce them to abstractions. My artistic gesture is an ironic stance towards modernity, humanity, and acts of selection and exclusion. My work transcends the abstract context and disagrees with silence.
