The world of the painting is secretive and offers dreamlike narratives about its meaning and pictoriallandscapes. In the space, the two-dimensional plane and three-dimensional physical world reflect. Shapes,lines and surfaces have spilled out of the canvas into the space, like dice thrown onto a board. Standingin the middle of a painting and experiencing it from within itself, feeling its atmosphere and materiality. Tomove within the canvas. The migration of simple but undefined shapes between dimensions brings newpossibilities and it becomes clear that not everything is as it seems on the canvas surface.
