2019 / cycle of 7 paintings, oil on canvas


What I do is affected by unclear stories I hear, scenes from films, texts I read, literature. I have recently wondered about the faint idea I have of the processes, devices that surround me every day. I try to explain these phenomena in my works by means of associations, my own symbolism. Paintings make up cycles, which are connected loosely by a similar topic, form. After long struggles in painting in a thick paint layer, drawing in it, I returned to classical painting, smoothly applied stains, glaze. I don’t know how long this will last, the form of works I make changes often, I try not to become attached to a style.
