About The Artwork

It was late the other day when I found a good place to stay on a small island. In the morning I had been swimming in the lake, later I begun to make breakfast. The sun streaking through the trees lit pine needles lying on the ground. This is how the idea for the “Light” painting came up. I cannot remember what made nature the leading subject of my works. The realm has always been of particular importance to me. With time the paintings became more and more synthetic, which was not pre-meditated but stemmed from my own experiences in contact with nature, influencing my way of perceiving the reality. I make up neither the idea nor the form. The concepts just occur to me, then I put them into practice. The inspirations for the paintings are found during my trips, when I have the possibility of a direct connection with nature. I analyse the ideas and impressions in the studio. I sythetise the form, delete the irrelevant elements, choose what is most important. Abstraction has always been close to me but the realistic motives also gave opportunity to convey different contents. I combine the expressively painted elements with colour patches. I pay a lot of attention to composition.
