My work portrays tormented female characters amidst landscapes that seems to be coming out of a dream. The central themes that I explore in my approach are love, fear, anguish and unrequited desire. In recent years, I am interested in both the solitude and the bipolarity of the existence of the human being, through the representation of memories.

Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. “They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole,” says author Anya von Bremzen. “You’d have Elvis on the lungs, Duke Ellington on Aunt Masha’s brain scan — forbidden Western music captured on the interiors of Soviet citizens.” [x]

My life with Ushio has been a constant struggle. But that has made me who I am today. Now I think all of that struggle was necessary for my art. So if I had to do it over again… I would. 57/365
