My works are complex photo collages based on my own photography. I have been collecting photographs for over a decade. It is a long process of combining carefully selected photography fragments and illustrated parts, which are then transferred to computer and further enhanced.
My work covers different aspects of life, changes, challenges, as well as human nature, but expressed as a long and unpredictable journey through some distant parallel worlds. It is a reflection of current experiences, relationships...of conscious and intentional, but also of dreams and unconscious reactions to our surroundings and present state of mind.
It is mostly conceptual and symbolic and reflects inner observations, presented through fantasy stories. However, on the other side, it also shows a path to some distant part of ourselves, the one of a child, which sometimes is unfortunately very much forgotten.
Sometimes it is dark, gloomy, and crumbling, while on the other side it is energetic and hopeful, even humorous.
"I am inspired by my surroundings and I see potential in various everyday things and relations, people, nature, architecture, even food. I see them sometimes as fragments of my work. Most of times they stay just that, fragments, and sometimes they become unified into a whole and therefore start to exist as a part of my sceneries.
By using real life photographs and textures I give my work a feel of realism, although the themes are far from being realistic…"
