Statement

Learning to paint is a journey of self discovery for me, it is a sort of meditation. I feel that painting is a mean to capture the human spirit and at the same time to reflect who I am. I believe that if you act from your heart and you are truly faithful, honest and passionate you will touch anotherís heart.

If I want to express something really important I prefer to paint it rather than to put it into words. Words are blind and empty, they will disappear anyway.

My images are metaphors for the unconscious mind as it processes an infinite stream of information, ideas and feelings. My paintings are highly conceptual and have aesthetic significance. They are self-contained. My paintings are my children, created in love. My best hope is that the images stand simply on their own, and find similar connections in the viewer where words fail. This is creativity of my soul.

P.S. I wish to THANK all who have encouraged and inspired me. And also to those, who didnít believe in me as they were the driving force, motivation for going on and the main source of energy.

Yours Faithfully,

Sophia Dejavu
