My painting is an attempt to familiarize and alternate the surrounding reality into my own. For many years I focused mainly on landscapes - their atmosphere, light, changeability. Since almost ten years it evolved into less concrete forms, the narration built on the language of unconstrained gesture, abstraction and activities devoid of reason's dictate. The painting is autonomous. The subjects that I undertake, the same as the process of painting itself, are in most cases intimate and private. The most recent examples involve: the relations of forms, delight, absconding, breathing, depth - rather less concrete and treated as the rule of origin rather than illustration. I am set on painting that is liberated and separate from the harsh reality, in order to counterbalance it.
