Painting: Oil on Canvas.
I'm interested in the rhythm, order and peace of nature. I always start with a study of nature. I transform fragments of reality, removing inessential elements, strengthening the ones which are necessary to me.
Simplified to almost abstract, basic forms, a landscape is to take an effect by planes of colour of different painting texture. Subsequently, paintings verging on abstract and reality are created. I reduce a landscape to signs, symbols to show the things which are the most important.
I'm inspired by both contemporary and old art. I value C.D. Friedrich and Vermeer and also Malewicz, Mondrian and Colour Field Painting, J. Pollock, On Kawara, the artists associated with the Earth Art, such as J. Turell, A. Goldworthy. The art and philosophy of the East is of a great significance to me as well.
I paint on canvas of different sizes, depending on the subjects constituting cycles of reeds, flowers, old buildings, horizons. It is vital for me that the public know what the painting presents, which is not always simple at first glance. That is why I entitle my works depending on the cycle they belong to. I give the exact date- the day, month, time. This is not the time when a picture is being created but the time when a given situation, light, colour, composition could have occurred. In the course of work on a painting, I combine various techniques, most frequently oil and acrylic, as each of them allows for a different effect. I combine roughly, expressively painted planes with touched up forms.
