My favorite medium of working is collage because of its dynamics that allows me to break elements from their contexts and insert them to the new reality. It is "new and surprising reality" that makes the creative process so very exciting like
discovering new unseen before land. This process is very simple (scissors and glue,) but
the results are powerful and often profound. I let myself be taken by the essence of these images not always knowing where it would lead me.
"I allow myself to be guided by the work which is in the process of being born, I have confidence in it, I do not think about it. The forms arrive pleasant, or strange, hostile, inexplicable, mute, or drowsy.
They are born from themselves. It seems to me as if all I do is move my hands."
