Art Description

Painting: Oil, Pastel, Photogram on Canvas.

I make art by exploring science. By studying astrobiology and theories of physics I try to understand the world. My paintings are a mix of realism and abstraction. I seek tones of lights, shadows and reflections when painting. When visualizing invisible, I often use innovative techniques.

An immortal sonata of life is resonating in this work. I have colored the painting by using an old photographic method called "cyanotype". When exposing light-sensitive emulsion to the sun - colours appear. Silhouettes are pictures of dna of one of the oldest bacteria in the world. With these beautiful pictures made inside biochemistry-laboratory, I have united the matter, the light and the sound.

BecauseThe Physics is everything.

It is light in the eye and warmth in the blood
It is the frigidity and darkness of stone
It is the weight of bird and the lightness of wind
It is emptiness and life – under the skin and above stars
