Artist statement..In my artistic practice I would like to research how the syndrome of Stickler from which I suffer plays an important role in my creative process. I am partially sighted and hard of hearing. My fingers are rather long because of this disability. This prevents me from doing punctual movements. I love my odd fingers. I do art because I like moving my hands. In addition, doing art is nothing more than my ambition to carve out for myself a special standing within the society. Great artists in unpleasant pathological and psychological states such as Leonardo da Vinci, El Greco, Van Gogh, Monet, Frida Kahlo, Joseph Beuys etc. encourage me to do art. Doing art I liberate my strong internal energy. According to the laws, I am a person in special needs. In my opinion, I am a special person!
