Here is the excerpt from the book that guided me in my work:

The waves broke and spread their waters swiftly over the shore. One after another they massed themselves and fell; the spray tossed itself back with the energy of their fall. The waves were steeped deep - blue save for a pattern of diamond- pointed light on their backs wich ripppled as the back of great horses ripple with muscles as they move. The waves fell again, like the thud of a great beast stamping.
Virginia Woolf, WAVES

CURRENT INTEREST AND RESEARCH
For the last 10 years I have been working in the medium of DRAWING in two and three dimensions and SCULPTURE-OBJECT connected with the research of NON-STANDARD DRAWING and SCULPTURE MATERIALS and their combinations. I use minimal visual intervention on drawing foundation (HAND MADE PAPER dimension 300:200 cm and photography.) I also carry out work on objects of small dimensions (METAL, RUBBER, PLASTIC SILICON GLASS,LED LIGHT) with central problem of transparency: INNER LIGHT INSTALLED AND CLOSED INSIDE THE OBJECT.
