My figures are semi realistically rendered symbolic representations of the contemporary canonic form of feminine. Through an inherent teen-aged attitude, expressed in forms, swimming peak performances and provocative poses, these figures transcend the boundaries of our human condition by evoking concepts of socially coded modes of emancipation and self-confidence. My approach to work is minimalist and tended to synthesize elements and forms. I examine the gender based issues in terms of  dichotomies: innocence and erotic, sexual and asexual identities, youth and adulthood, dejection and defiance. The role of voyeurism is also a key word in my artistic’s work.
