“I enjoyed the experience of meditative immersion in the picture, when the boundaries of reality were blurred and the view went beyond the horizon of consciousness, turning objects into conductors of one's own inner world.
Patterns application dissolved the boundaries even faster. Absolutely different pictures, objects, transformations, and worlds can be seen from different angles and distances. This is the magic of consciousness playing with form and color.

I liked working with colours and shades more than with the form, so the texture of the colour specified my choice of material for collages. Colour paper seemed boring and primitive. I was looking for a material that would convey not only the colour, but also feelings, such as tactual, audio, olfactory, physical sensations and sensibility.
A material that would synthesize chemistry and physics, target directly at the heart, the brain, body muscles, and open up human information fields.

Some works are connected into diptychs and triptychs. This method is used to guide the consciousness from one object to another, so one can walk, jump, make quantum leaps around the objects.

Every particular collage has its own mood. Each colour is an idea. Some works contain erotic details attracting attention and appealing to instincts. And even if there are no details like that, viewers still often see them.

The goal of the collages is to reveal your own inner world.”
