Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Paint on Canvas.

Everyone is ordinary, everyone is special. What is important? The simple things in life are very special. Little moments of happiness. A familiar, sweet and happy moment with your loved one. A nice conversation. A look at the sea or mountain. A person who says something very valuable to you. From my memory I depict these moments in a symbolic way, always emphasizing the person. I depict the human being or people (the other and 'me') in an abstract way. As a result, the emphasis is not on the specific appearance of a person, but on the emotion, the inner and the interaction between people. The paintings are expressive, with large lines and colors. The ordinary becomes special and the special becomes ordinary. Because society places a great deal of emphasis on performance and excellence, I find it important to emphasize the ordinary and the simple. That is why these series are called: Ordinary People.

This woman I painted turned out to be a modern icon for me: a universal woman with universal feelings. I called her 'Maria'.
