Painting begins with a spark, an idea, an impulse. Sometimes it seems as though the painting creates itself, intuition guides me during the process.
I chose themes that pervade everyday life, our constant battle with problems which we inevitably face. But also issues which haunt us for years, shaping our perspective on the world and building us as humans. I try to capture the moments of tension, the climax, and the spark before ignition. In trivialities as well as in big events I seek contrasts between imagination and reality. Our expectations and our anticipations are never what we finally meet in real life. This constant collision fascinates me. It’s irrelevant whether it’s beauty and ugliness, order or chaos- the points is, how it’s reflected in the mirror of my interpretation.
I am moved by people’s stories with all their misfortunes and moments of happiness. It seems like one is always part of the other.
I try to uncover what’s in the shadow of the mainstream- hidden in history, politics and art. I seek a particle which doesn’t cease to exist when the stream of change escapes the fingers.
I seek emotions which stay true in time while the intrusive waves of promoted world try to capture us every day.
In my art, there is literature that I read and music that I hear. There are people I met and people I have never seen.
Aggressive and invasive cult of surrounding yourself with things and even more things and the sick need of planning our lives, all of it opposes what’s important in life- curiosity about the world and appreciation of others’ achievements as well as failures.
We are forced to look at art as seen by ‘influential critics and famous experts’. Where is the space for our own interpretation? Manipulation in art makes me furious. I try to present my work without redundant comments or hints, perhaps, apart from the title. Interpret it however you want it; BE FREE FOR ART!
