Artist’s thoughts:


“In my own work, the form is the most important element. When creating a painting, I mainly focus on this first layer. I see abstraction in the forms when observing most works of art, even when a painting is greatly representational. The “meaning” of my work is often not obvious and can be just as mysterious for me as for an observer. I believe the effect is much better when a painting is not calculated from A to Z. There has to be accidence in painting; the painting lives its own life and should surprise its creator. It’s these things that make a work of art enjoyable to create. There is no denying the possibility that I unintentionally create a kind of recorded meaning in my paintings, but I believe that most artists do so. In the end, I usually create under influence of great emotions, therefore, accidence occurs more frequently and is immediately perceivable. I feel somewhat like one who has lost their memory and tries to recall old memories from the past through painting. It’s an incredible feeling.”
