unnamed-7My aesthetic approach is strongly linked with the sense, the emotion and the object. At first I build the shape, and the shape then starts talking to me about the colours – a vision of mine on which I based my artistic conviction.
Some associative mechanisms, as well as musical behavior during building the composition, can give the form organic and anthropomorphic vision.

My belief is that space as felt through the senses, determines the form and the internal geometry, colour and structure. With the rhythm between them, they are meant to redefine space and reiterate the idea of fluidly passing through the multitude of layers in the painting – much like a spiral construction.

In terms of technique, I use natural silk canvas where I combine different techniques to construct the form, which is graphically well expressed through the detail. I use active colors and as a counterpoint, gently iridescent watercolor tones.
The strong, stylized and sophisticated graphical presentation, as well as the intercourse between volume and light, express specific aspects of my work.

“My work has its own ideological composition which is independent of the perception of the viewer. Organic interplay of form and color, as well as many contextual compositions formed in the mind of the beholder, is one of the principles of freedom of perception and lack of commitment on the specifics in the known. Allowing everyone watching my work, each time to tell himself a different story-finding himself and knowing the space in a different way.”
