Home for sale - serie coming soon

How could those strong, impossible, memories could be wiped completely out of one's mind? How pictures that you try to avoid always pop back in? How words, that you try to avoid saying, come back out? Why breaking away is so hard, but clinging to something is so hard? Why cleaning was so important, but playing not so much?

At the moment, I am making new sculptures. From the series: Evening beers, 2017 Plaster, sand

My new works in 2017- 2018 deal with human mind through addictions and what some addiction really reveals. Everybody has secrets that they don't want to tell anyone, but in the end is there some big mental tragedy or wound behind the addiction that one is involuntarily or unconsciously covering? Would it still be easier if one could be brave enough to talk about it? In my new works, I bring out repetition and series, and this method has been one of the fundamental forces in my works long time already. In the works, I am thinking about the situation where repetition of an addiction does not transform to compulsive behavior, or it stops being addictive: what has happened in human psyche and physiology when that happens? Is the fear gone? Is the state permanent? Can it even be true? Does the addiction change target?
