VIEW IN MY ROOM
The concept of the "Tin" collection. The color of the gray galvanized metal is like a zero point. Freezing. Pause before action. Halfway between something immensely large and imperceptibly small. Works of art inspired by life and simplicity. In this case, the day-to-day life is exalted in the sense that it is an inspirer, a prompter, and a poser. It reveals itself in all its mystical reality, through materiality, smell, reflections, sounds. And most importantly, it happens all the time, all you have to do is see, listen, smell and, not always necessary, understand it. It is enough to be and experience. The smell, sound, color and reflectivity of the metal fragmentarily remind me of the work and days spent in the metal factory processing - milling, turning, grinding - metal in various ways. The matte or glossy texture of the material evoked various associations in my mind and caught my imagination - transforming the banal work of a machinist into a strange, different quotidien life, filled with images and visions. This is how day-to-day life turns into the philosophy of Existence. Even uncomfortable situations that made you feel like a little creature while standing and operating on a giant metalworking machinery and hearing only a loud and fast-spinning grabber would push the boundaries of your imagination and reveal a magically real world. I just wanted to stop, watch and be within it. All of this has not gone anywhere, it has remained ingrained in my consciousness and to this day it still appears in a vibrating, mysterious and inspiring day-to-day existence in different shapes and forms. These manifestations of my creation are not an attempt to get rid of the routine, but to be in it with all one's being. And now, as before, I want to stand in front of these voluminous sheets of metal I’ve created today and just watch, observe.

My field of research covers topics such as — the state of extreme reality, the opposition of nature and emptiness to human-controlled chaos of objects, the feeling of repetition of various senses and the emotional state of impending reality. An access to the personal stories of the past delusions is also through the exploration of a collective subconsciousness. I often get ideas and create works from my memories of a childhood, travel experiences, different cultural and geographical contexts. I still cherish the feeling from childhood that I enjoyed creating my own imaginary place in a large enigmatic structure. I am interested in both physical and psychological responses to form, space and surface. In my artistic practice I search for the undefined boundaries between materials, dimensions, and high art versus low art. I find it very fascinating to create a one-off phenomenon with materials that are available to anyone. I move back and forth between the two extremes of organic and artificial things, and two and three dimensions — static and dynamic, light and shadow. In other words, my artistic field is meeting point between sculpture, painting, installation, and ready-made. It is an improvised process, something purely intuitive. The objects give me the keys for the pieces. Sometimes the idea does not emerge 'a priori'; it is the research process that configures an idea — generating new connections with different 'words' is like taking the significance of an object to its limits. The way I install my artworks enables me to layer the space that they establish around them. I see this as a kind of framing, which allows for new perspectives and relationships to evolve among the structural shape.
