Abstract painting and drawing are the most significant inspirations for my artworks. Recently I try to develop a different attitude towards the presentation of my pieces. Each of my paintings or visual compositions has a specific connection with material/immaterial potencial surrounding it. This connection is a moment of deconstruction, finding a new microcosm. An image is still in present, and the viewer has to discover its true nature by himself. These observations made it clear for me that maybe I shouldn’t rationalize my art, maybe I am still not capable of describing it correctly.
Empty space is a really important motive in modern art. The apparent emptiness gives a chance to experience and distinguish the other colours of ourselves. As it comes to my artworks, the “absent” black forms (optically full and continuous) confuse the eye. The presence of emptiness is the main theme of my creation – it leads to unusual meanings and establishes new borders of reality.
