I start from the very beginning, my time started in Georgia. As every time starts some-where, as the time of creation also does. I grew up in an environment where we had to recreate and re-imagine the world as it was. The USSR and Berlin wall fall, echoed in my country. Poverty, no light, disturbing criminal atmosphere. I was born and grew up facing it. No fancy toys, no fancy schools, no fancy anything. Only for few, who made money by creating criminality in Georgia. Time has stopped at that particular country in 90s, people were left with the question- what's next?
Next was to create. I've learned to create worlds, with tolls that I had, from small pieces to draw narrative stories to entertain myself. I spent much time with Mom in theater, where she works. I was always surrounded by images and time moved. It taught me that everything can be re-imagined.
I've never was much interested in Bible as a narrative teller. Though, Georgia is strictly religious country and it’s translated throughout everything, I wasn't forced to be one of Religious fanatics. I was only taught to be fascinated by the stories and culture of Bible, how they were translated to art worldwide and in Georgia. Prerogative to navigate, through religion and environment, was given to myself by myself. Images were frozen in Churches of Georgia that tell stories that don’t relate to present, something old that is here and never leaves, though time goes on.
