** STATEMENT **
In painting, references to nature are important to me. It is my wealth of diversity of allusions that provokes me!
This is where my first impulse to feel comes from.
By nature, I choose a network of imagies, sounds, light and space and structure. All this causes a certain process of thinking and creating my traces, gestures, signs, energy. I associate real and abstracts references in realistic-abstract paintings with a
human being entangled in it. My paintings base on strong colours, dynamic lines, layered or flat splashes of colour, rough texture / or lack thereof and modified consistency of acrylic and oil paint.
However, it is difficult to limit creativity to the
implementation of a predetermined plan. Painting as a dynamic process still changes the original premise and idea. I see my paintings as fields of natural provocation, even a struggle between concept and painterly matter, a confrontation of imagination and
White canvases always trigger in me the desire to naturally and spontaneously reveal the 'stream of color'. How painting deviate from the original premise, how new solutions open up during work – is an important part of my work.
The expression of paintings is the result of my fascination with nature: chaos-regularity, the diversity of textures and rhythms, and non/unambiguousness. The paintings are a synthesis of my painting research aimed at creating painting compositions with
a non/permanent and non/specific emotional charge.
In my work I am close to the concept of "synesthesia". It expresses to me in the search and determination of the relationship between painting, sound and light: Performance painting - sound - light.
The essence of my action is to create a "live" dynamic painting narrative using my expression and creation - this is the artistic method. I complete and merge the layers of painting and sound with light, formally and expressively.
My art is a meeting
(artists and recipients, man and man), creation, improvisation and dialogue, which subconsciously activates in the audience individual and common senses, emotions and energy ... - opens up to the experience of nature and art.
