The exhibition theme
"I use the city as a metaphor. The city is us, what we know and do not know where we're at home and where we can not come forward. "
She works in series:
The series "Foreign Cities" is a module painting, in which 12 individual in different formats can be hung together in different ways, so that a corner or a wall in space make up a city.
Each image is a portrait of a building, and at the same time an emotional state that viewers are invited into Together, the associations to maps, maze or cardboards.
In the series "Places I have not been" a city has been out crystalized themselves on the square surface. The deep frame that is part of the picture, make sure you look into it as a box. The use of gold and vokstempera suggests that the pictures are icons, they refer to places that escape us, that we can not find out.
