KRISTINA OKAN, the artist: “The language of abstract geometric forms in visual art is expressive and thought-provoking. In my artworks I challenge the viewer to find their own meaning, wake up feelings and emotions, associations and fantasies, which are more covert, carrying some secret and mystery. I see artwork not just as an object with concept behind–at first, it is a communication of a particular object with a particular viewer. Their private dialogue.
Inspired by Renaissance traditional still lives with theirs visual relish of objects I create sensual biomorphic shapes based on repetitive and fractal modules.
