The influence of animated films and comic books remains pronounced throughout Salome Jokhadze's works. Akin to the characters of these films and books, Salome creates characters who travel through story to story and appear in various different parts of her works, often unexpectedly. The use of text is also an integral part of her approach - short, narrative sentences and statements sometimes appear in the artworks themselves. Often times, these short texts offer to act as a bird's eye view into her personal and more emotive entries. Other times, they hint to an existence of a lucid story beneath the words.
