When I started with this work, I just knew that it has to be exactly as I imagine it. No compromise and no coincidence, at first with high discipline and at the end, a touch of active imagination in details.
Started with the shape of the ship, situated in upper part of the surface, with enough space for the waves, then started to paint, bit by bit, scrape the paint from the light waves, leave the dark waves which are lifting ship from the sea, fill the belly of the ship with light and draw and paint everything for a very long time.
It was the first thing that I see in the morning and the last thing I see in the evening before I go to sleep. And then, as I watched it all the time, I knew that something else must appear on that surface, something else must be on that ship, some kind of energy.
And that was it, I closed my eyes and I saw energy in shape of something that is spinning, like humming top, peg top toy....
That was a touch of active imagination that I know it will appear, the freedom of thinking opposite very precisely designed work.
It was some kind of metaphysics enlightenment.
I will leave the viewer to see what that energy is, don't want to make suggestions, although I know what it means to me.
