Printmaking: Linocuts on Paper.
From the cycle " House M. Afterimages". the work is signed and numbered. My cities exist outside of time; there are no people, vehicles or signs there that would be linked to the present day. I consciously avoid it. They would form unnecessary accessories. Without people, voices and noise, a city exists as a separate and independent entity. I have always been more attracted by places and objects immersed in the past: it is a kind of nostalgia for antiquity. This is the original copy of the graphic matrix, not computer printout.
For several years I have focused on a series of works based on the theme of the city. Urban space, architectural, landscape an excuse for me to create my personal, subjective reality. City is a space that captures history, records the evidence of existence of a man whose life is but an episode in the city's history. The city lives longer and that is why it is so fascinating. It exists as if for itself. In my prints, I organise this space myself. It all starts with a motif seen somewhere that I later start thinking about. When traveling, I look for places that will captivate me, that will stimulate my imagination. After all, the most important thing is the sensual experience, the observation of a specific place, astonishment, awe. Some cities remain with me forever and I never leave them anymore.
