In her work, the young painter seeks sensible yet simple solutions that are still narrative enough that they can’t be encompassed in pure abstraction. The artwork is thus very connected to its title. It refers to itself, the shapes it contains play with each other and grow and stand completely alone; they do not address the viewer – the viewer is the one who must submit to their influence. Through her art, the author filters her everyday life, but does not want to be literal and point her finger at people, problems and events. Rather, she always tinkers with her own episodes, metaphors and daydreams.
