*1988 in Goldberg, Poland, lives and works in Berlin

.“..for me the breasts embedded in the hilly landscape are a symbol of emergence, the source of life per se. For the Greeks, the galaxy originated as a divine stream of milk that emanated from the breast of Hera, the wife of Zeus. That’s why it was given the name ‘Milky Way’. Nour- ishing, or birthing, marks the beginning and can thus also be seen as the root of inspiration. Breasts appear in my paintings as something absolutely desirable, as a mystical Fata Morgana, as something distantly inaccessible that one desires from afar. My paintings are transcendent refuges. This somnambulistic, the non-manifest, the dissolving is also reflected in my brushwork: it flows vertically down the canvas.“
