ARTIST STATEMENT “In my photographs, I seek to capture the delicate interplay of line, form, and texture, harmoniously balancing each element to create a composition of exquisite beauty. I am intrigued by the ways in which these elements can be harnessed to evoke movement, depth, and tension in an image. I strive to create unique, captivating images that testify to the power of visual language. I pay meticulous attention to shape, light, and color, seeking to elevate each image to the realm of the sublime. I believe that combining different visual elements can create powerful, striking images that resonate with the viewer on a deeper level inducing a sense of transcendence. Each photograph is a window into my vision of the world, a reflection of my artistic sensibility. My photographic language is influenced by Richard Diebenkorn, Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Francisco Infante-Arana, Alexander Calder, Alexander Sliussarev, and Gueorgui Pinkhassov.”
