During the pandemic, I had the need for introspection and reflection. I felt the urge to explore the possibilities for something I could relate to, which could deeply move me, evoking memories and emotions. I wanted to create a visual and poetic territory that would act as the link between reality and a universe where a harmonious correlation could be achieved between the fantasy of an escape and the mysteries of dreams.
My series "After Echo" depicts an internal journey that resonates with my silent encounters with nature and places I visited over the last ten years. It's an attempt to convey a sense of longing for a timeless beauty, to portray the essence behind the apparent and the perpetual presence of the sublime. "After Echo" constitutes an emotional response to the proportions of space and time.
Through conversations of fragments of memory, experiences are reconstructed, emotions are transformed and create the silent context that seems to be the hope for the embrace between the past and the future. The significant places that magnetize me in this work are essentially honest testimony to achieving a goal, which is nothing more than the pursuit of inner peace as a permanent state. Ultimately, at its core, it's about the awareness of one being present and the reconnection of oneself with the whole.
