"I/We are Creator in the human body. The expressiveness of fluid minimalistic images, the reduction and integrity of the composition contribute to the creation of generalized symbolic images, sculptures-schemes and help to express the idea that Creator is, at the same time, nothing and everything, absolute Love and Knowledge."- Elisaveta Sivas
