Using the media of digital collage I explore the artistic and theoretical aspects of transferring, conveying, modifying and integrating existing works of art (or their reproduction) into a new visual structure. My artistic strategy is based on concepts of interpretation, intertextuality, interimagery and transfiguration.
The methodology of this artistic research is focused on examining the potential of reproduction, collage and assembly process in creating an artwork and integrative effects of digital printmaking. The appropriated images from art history in my work reveal their presence in contemporary momentum.
I am trying to establish a dialogue between memory and the present. In this way, integrated art tradition becomes part of contemporary art practice. Appropriated picture and its meaning imply the necessity of establishing the attitude towards given meaning. Creative procedure that can be defined as the recoding in my work involves a new approach to reading the existing codes of art and media culture.
