PRECIOUS INSIDE OUT
Mica, resin, acrylic paint
I have been interested in minerals since my childhood. Minerals can take me into a fantasy world. They remind me of blooming buds, phenomena trying to erupt from earth. It is impressive that they grow not only individually but in groups. As a child I loved to hide in the blooming bushes, I felt as if I were dropped into a fairy tale. My works evoke my childhood memories. Mica brings back the lightness, colour and shine, what plants and flowers have meant to me. I love to observe the details, shapes and forms, what nature creates. The atmosphere, what is kept in my memories, creates my own garden of Wonder.
