Gender is a kind of imitation for which there is no original
Judith Butler

 

In my art I gain inspiration from Rosi Braidotti’s concept of nomadic subject and Judith Butlers’ theories of the performative nature of gender and sex.

My paintings are a praise of variability, diversity and being different. I believe that women do not fall into one homogenous category and each woman does not need to define herself once for life. Various experiences change her throughout life;  all changes enrich and build her identity. Braidotti claims that subject’s identity is always somewhere in between. Subject’s identity is being, acting, finding herself in the world as much as amid nature and culture. Each identity exists between masculinity and femininity. My NUDES depict the exact moment of being in between.

The NATURE series deal with the topic of freedom. It is a crucial issue for individuals looking to determine themselves and constituting their being in the world. To determine themselves they always need another person. My PORTRAITS treat on the importance of dialogue, as one creates her  identity within the framework of a found context.

My favourite technique is watercolor. It is a natural way of expression which fits my artistic temperament perfectly. I paint on an impulse. High pace of working and intuitiveness forced by watercolor technique are a great asset when capturing a fleeting moment. I’m also driven by problems of a formal nature. I’m still developing my technique and unique style, but I’m nonetheless fascinated by the results of interblending spots of color that watercolor delivers.
