My artworks explore concepts around intimacy with the purpose to capture the connection and relationship between me and the person depicted. This way, I want my art to reveal my presence and make it obvious to the audience. My paintings aim to challenge how people will handle being viewers of private moments and make them wonder what is going on. However, the viewer could also recall their own intimate moments when seeing mine. Artworks aim to interact with each other and reveal my enjoyment while creating them. In some of the works, I am interested to depict mostly the awkwardness of a moment by giving more value to the face/look and making visible something that someone would hide. In other works, I like to present the movement of a moment in order to look as something lasting. My paintings bring up everyday, autobiographical moments in order to depict a reality.
